In cases where donations exceed what is needed for a specific
initiative, we promise to honor your generosity by using
your gift where it will have the most impact on building sustainable livelihoods for those living in poverty.
In March of 2019, Deyl Kearin and Gregg and Abby Starr will embark on the sixth Run4Poverty. Each runner will each attempt to complete an insane 155-mile course through the ancient forests, high plateaus, vast valleys, and challenging terrain on the South Island of New Zealand...in only 6 days...which is basically a marathon each day! Why will they attempt to do it? They want to challenge themselves. But even more so because they believe that Opportunity International is changing the world by helping impoverished people start life-sustaining businesses and have access to education through its microloan and EduFinance programs. Help them create a route out of poverty through access to education!
