Our network of young professionals and entrepreneurs are putting our passion for poverty eradication into action, challenging our communities of colleagues, family and friends to get involved in the microfinance work of Opportunity International, especially in Tanzania where less than 5% of the population has access to formal banking. Browse all of YAO's fundraisers below, launched for everything from mud runs to birthdays to Insight Trips, and contribute to our mission to end global poverty. All donations to YAO fundraisers will be designated to Opportunity's work in Tanzania.
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!
