Actress and television voice of Lisa Simpson, Yeardley Smith has teamed up with Grameen Foundation to fight poverty.

She has recently returned from a trip to Haiti to visit GF partner Fonkoze and learn first hand about the experiences of poor women whose lives have been transformed by microfinance.

    I’m so pleased that the GFoundation took you to Fonkoze in Haiti. It so balances the influence of Rush Limbaugh’s recent cruel, inaccurate critique of Haiti. Fonkoze is Haiti proudly helping Haitians help themselves, and a chance for us elsewhere to partner with the organized poor – a formidable force!

    Absolutely incredible read!! Heart-warming, concise, and simply put. Thanks so much. Haiti and certainly the world need more people like you to get involve in “Creating a World Without Poverty”.
