How to get involved

1

Get Planning

Decide what kind of curry you want to cook and lock in a date for your event sometime during October or November. You can share a spice night at home, host a curry cook-off at work or let the professionals do their thing by heading out to enjoy a curry at a restaurant – it’s completely up to you!

2

Create a Fundraiser

Follow a few easy steps to set up your fundraising page and goal.

3

Spread the Word

Invite your friends, family or colleagues along to enjoy your curry and show their support by donating through your fundraising page. Donations will help Opportunity reach out to families living in poverty in countries such as India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Wait – why curry?

Too many people in the world live in poverty – and sadly, many of them right on our doorstep. Just past Australia’s shores, Asia is home to family after family who struggle to earn an income. As a result, they go without three meals a day, clean water, safe shelter and even school for their children.

Asia is also full of incredible curries – from the Korma Curry of India to the Green Curry of Thailand. Colourful dried spices hang in busy streets while the air is filled with the incredible aroma of street food and home cooking.

By sharing a curry with friends this October or November (in honour of Anti-Poverty Week – 15-21 October), we can celebrate the vibrancy of these countries while also giving a hand up to families in need. Every dollar raised will help Opportunity International Australia provide small loans to families in Asia, giving them the tools they need to start their own businesses, earn regular incomes and begin to leave poverty behind.
