You are invited to join us for our Downtown PBL luncheon on Wednesday, July 22nd at the Downtown University Club of Portland.
“In February 2010, Luke Pinneo quit his job at a well known financial institution in Denver Colorado, bought a one way ticket to Port-Au-Prince, beginning a two month journey that would in many ways re-direct the course of his life. Not knowing fully what he would encounter but trusting the calling to “just go,” Luke and a close friend immediately began work establishing a home base for a micro-finance institution called Esperanza, as well as aiding in the installations of the over a dozen large scale solar powered, water purification units.
Feeling the deep impact of offering instant access to safe water for thirsty communities all across the beautiful country of Haiti, it was in this experience where World Thirst, a micro finance institution focused exclusively on delivering safe water through small business creation was born.”
Please make plans to join us for lunch to hear Luke share his life story.
