This is the first of a 12-part series on our blog in 2016 that will highlight a different development issue each month. Now you may be wondering, “what is a development issue and why is it important for credit unions?”In our Development Education (DE) Program, the National Credit Union Foundation helps DE trainees delve into global development issues and recognize the ways in which credit unions can address these issues to improve the well-being of members and communities. 12 major development issues have been identified as barriers to economic growth and prosperity for the world’s families. These issues do provide us with dilemmas and barriers, but more importantly, they provide us with challenges to overcome and opportunities to capitalize on. Working together can make a real difference in the lives of people in our local, national and global communities.

This month, we will focus on the development issue of transportation. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
