Poverty can deprive people of basic necessities like shelter, nutrition, and good health. We draw from our experience in the field of hospitality and team with networks like World Vision® and Kiva™ to help provide families and children with the vital tools they need to thrive. Best Western is the largest corporate sponsor for child sponsorship, supporting as many as 500 children.
World Vision began in 1950 and has grown to support over 100 countries worldwide. 4.2 million children are currently benefiting from their sponsorship program. Funds donated through Best Western For A Better World® will support children around the world.
Microfinancing is a proven solution that jumpstarts small businesses in impoverished countries. Kiva is our partner for US donors. Kiva is currently responsible for over $470 million in micro loans around the world and boasts over a 99% loan repayment rate. Canadian donations will support microfinancing programs through World Vision. With your support, Best Western For A Better World® will be able to continue helping entrepreneurs in developing nations.
