Congressman Rangel to Present Jack Brewer Foundation With Congressional Certificate
Date:2/25/2009

NEW YORK, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, February 26, the office of United States Congressman, Charles B. Rangel of New York's 15th District, will present The Jack Brewer Foundation with a Congressional Certificate in appreciation for the foundation's work in the African community.

The certificate will be presented to JBF Worldwide during the 2nd Annual Eli Klein Fine Art Winter Fundraiser hosted by Dallas Cowboys Running Back, Marion Barber, and JBF Worldwide. The fundraiser is being held to benefit children and families in Malawi, Africa.

The Jack Brewer Foundation is an organization of many initiatives, but center stage is given to the microfinance fund benefiting families in Malawi. Together with the Joyce Banda Foundation in Malawi, JBF Worldwide has empowered thousands of families by providing small loans in order to create economic stability.

With 1.2 million orphans in Malawi, JBF Worldwide is committed to developing initiatives that focus on creating self-sustaining development. Proceeds from the initiative enable families to obtain the resources needed to grow and harvest food within their communities.

The Malawi microfinance program has seen an astounding 100 percent repayment history since its inception. The majority of individual loans are for less than $10 US, which provides sufficient resources for an individual spanning an entire growing season.

The program includes a goat drive that gives mothers with HIV clean goat milk to feed their children, credit to fund fertilizer, seed and farm equipment, and also acts as a means to finance the development of markets to disburse their locally harvested produce.
