Tesch Super Sprint

Fundraiser Image "I just want to support my family, and help launch my children into productive, self-sufficient adults." Who does this sound like? YOU? ME? Yes! And millions of other women around the world who don't have what we have - the chance to get ahead and build a life with enough. Enough education, enough food, enough clothing, sufficient housing. The chance to help their children get ahead. This small race pales in comparison to what Opportunity clients go through just to get through a day - but I hope to raise awareness and HOPE, and shine a light on fellow global citizens like you who are willing to help a sister (or a brother!) get ahead. Thank you!

Where Donations Go

In spite of the challenges they face, women worldwide show inspiring resilience and determination to break out of the cycle of poverty. Studies show that when women have access to financial services, they have a significant impact on the quality of life for their families, especially their children. Your gift to Opportunity will empower women to develop new roles as income earners and community leaders. With access to transformational training, and critical financial products such as savings, loans and insurance, women in poverty can build financial security and create stability for their families, often for the first time in their lives. Opportunity operates under a model of sustainable success. Loans are granted. Loans are repaid and loaned again and again. As important, 95% of our loan clients are women and 99% of these loans are repaid in full.
