Throughout our twenty-fifth anniversary year, we’ve been exploring the connections between the pioneering work of our earliest Fellows and the newest innovations of our 2013 class. All summer long we’ll be offering up video pairings showing that the locally-grown apple doesn’t fall too far from the microfinanced tree. So before you slip out for the weekend, take a moment to learn about the changes these Fellows have brought about in this world, and the work yet to be done!
