I believe that the only difference between our friends across the globe and us is that we are all fortunate enough to have just won life's luck of the draw. I believe that it could have easily been me in their position given the endless chances and yet I'm here, healthy, having access to clean water and a roof over my head.
With that in mind, I can only imagine that if I was on the other side of the world, facing the same circumstances our friends face, I would want a helping hand as well to give me the opportunity to support my family and me.
If something as simple as organising a dinner to help contribute to the cause, will make a difference to somebody's life in a positive way, then it wasn't a hard decision to join this campaign.
About Opportunity International Australia
Opportunity International Australia enables you to invest in a mother living in poverty so that she can use a small loan to buy an item like a sewing machine and start a small business. For a family who can’t afford the basics, a gift of $70 can be life changing. With this hand up, a mother can put food on the table, send her children to school and transform her family’s future for generations. Mothers want what is best for their children, and as businesses become successful (98% of Opportunity’s loans are repaid), your help means they can make their dreams for their children come true.
