On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women we will kick off 16 days of activism (orchestrated by the UN) against gender-based violence.
Please support Opportunity as we work to end violence.
“While violence against women and girls is endemic in India, it touches us all, is in our backyard – irrespective of where we live, our socioeconomic background, our educational achievements. It’s a universal issue, close to home, and we all have an obligation to eliminate it. That’s why the United Nations wants the world to unite by standing up against gender-based violence on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November and during the following 16 days of activism.” Hannah Surabhi, My Choices Foundation, @OpportunityAUS #16daysofactivism #orangetheworld
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.
