“We believe it’s critical to have more than just a mission statement … we need a world changing purpose. Therefore Arête High Performance Network and Opportunity International are partnering to help in the fight against extreme poverty to give people living on less than $2 a day the chance to create a job with your donation. Opportunity International is a US-based Christian charity that operates in 28 countries around the world that offers loans, savings, insurance and training targeted at under-served entrepreneurs. These services will equip families with the training and financial resources that they need to educate their children, grow their businesses and reinvest in their communities. Training programs provides transformation services alongside these that address spiritual needs in the community.

If you join Arete High Performance Advisors between now and March 31, 2016, we will ask that in lieu of the Arete annual membership fee, please agree to a monthly donation of $30, to go to Opportunity International, to help create a job, and start the journey for someone out of extreme poverty. Your donation will be drafted from your credit card or bank account. Simply click the Donate Now button on this page and follow the instructions. We will collect your information via Opportunity’s monthly donation reports and start your membership the following month from your first gift.
Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
