Bankers without Borders®, Grameen Foundation’s volunteer initiative, is a global reserve corps of business professionals and retirees from a variety of industries who contribute their time, skills, and experience to support microfinance and technology for development. These volunteers work to change lives and enable the poor – especially the poorest – to create a world without poverty.

Bankers without Borders® works with companies, associations, higher education institutions, and individuals to match volunteers’ skills with the critical needs of organizations serving poor people around the world.

Bankers without Borders® partners with companies and organizations interested in:
--Developing skills-based volunteer programs or sabbaticals for their employees or members interested in serving people in poverty.
--Aligning their strategic business objectives with their corporate philanthropy practices.
--Measuring the social and financial impact of their volunteer efforts.

Individuals interested in volunteering their expertise should complete the Bankers without Borders® application and submit their resume. Once approved, you become part of our reserve corps of volunteers, and gain access to:
--Updates on exciting and challenging global volunteer assignments (see below for details).
--Trainings and the latest information on microfinance and related topics.
--A community of people who share your passion for innovative solutions to global poverty.

When you are selected for an assignment, you’ll receive a detailed scope of work and specific training and consultation from a GF Project Manager. Bankers without Borders® will also provide orientation and support to help prepare you for any international assignments.
