One out of every two people on this planet struggles to feed and educate their children. When powered by opportunity, they have a chance to work their way out of poverty and transform their lives. For 45 years, Opportunity International has provided the savings, loans, training and insurance that all people need to create a better future for their families and their communities.
About this project
Chick-fil-A and Opportunity International Nicaragua share a powerful perspective despite their differing fields: we believe that each person has unique, God-given talents, and that it is the mission of each of us to serve others so that they can best use their gifts.
Together, we create strong ethical leadership and community throughout our entire company. And our commitment to leadership development and its impact also guides Chick-fil-A’s philanthropy.
Today, we invite you to be part of an extraordinary opportunity to change lives in Nicaragua.
Before 2014 draws to a close, please take a minute to donate to our partnership with Opportunity International.
Thanks to a generous $30,000 match commitment from Tom and Alexandra Roddy, your gift made today will be doubled.
Please donate generously – any amount you choose to give will be matched by the Roddy family! The match opportunity closes at midnight on December 31.
Your support will help
Today, we are at an exciting juncture with all of the programs in Nicaragua and your partnership could significantly impact our success. The Entrepreneurship school will graduate its first class in 2016. More farmers are being served than ever. The program has already surpassed its 2015 goal to serve 800 farmers. More than 1,000 are receiving training, a loan or market access. We are now doing everything possible to ensure that harvest is successful in the face of insufficient rainfall.
Your timely support can help ensure the completion of classrooms and preparation for the first graduating class, and completion of the yucca processing plant before January harvest. You can help Nicaraguan families achieve many levels of transformation as they work their way out of poverty with dignity. With your partnership, we are empowering farmers to increase yields and income, students to build skills for the future, and communities to realize their own vision for sustainable livelihoods. On behalf of our clients, thank you!
