Join Us to Eradicate Poverty
We are a visionary new generation of globally minded young people -- emerging leaders who are joining forces to eradicate poverty around the world.
And we believe it can be done in our lifetime.
Young Ambassadors for Opportunity (YAO) is committed to strengthening impoverished communities through the power of microfinance and the work of Opportunity International.
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!
