Social Good: Matt Flannery
Continuing our series, Matt Flannery tells about his transition from computer programming at TiVo to co-founder of Kiva.org. His experience underlies his belief that we can all apply our knowledge and skillset for social good.
Flannery tells how he used computer programming to create a system where someone could get $25 into the hands of a Ugandan woman via the Internet.
At Kiva, we’ve experienced this out-pouring of love,” Flannery says. “We’ve become this vessel of generosity through this little website that we built.”

"Whatever your skill, whatever your expertise,” says Flannery, “there’s a way to apply that to help people you care about."
