Today I came across the site of a project which inspired me and made me believe in the better in people.
To improve access to education, Opportunity’s Banking on Education initiative provides loans to entrepreneurs to start schools, improve infrastructure and expand educational opportunities for children living in poverty.
In Colombia, Opportunity created a job skills program for youth at risk and provided loans so graduates could open their own businesses.
Opportunity Malawi offers loans for latrines and water pumps, to decrease illness and improve overall health.
Around the world, farmers like Lucas Chingore of Mozambique are able to acquire high quality seeds and crop insurance through Opportunity’s agriculture finance program.
Take a look at http://www.opportunity.org and perhaps join or donate and make world better then it is at the moment.
