Hope is universal

"Opportunity provides immense hope to the families it serves. Hope leads to self-respect. When I visited some of Opportunity’s loan recipients in India, I was moved by the huge lift in self-respect experienced by them. We know and almost take for granted, that the small loans help them build businesses and earn regular incomes. But until that point I hadn’t realised that Opportunity was being culturally and socially revolutionary. And that through this, the families Opportunity serves experience an abundance of hope." Peter Cadwallader, Opportunity Council member

Breaking the cycle of poverty - one small loan at a time

People often ask me: “What is poverty?” Is the face of poverty the 767 million people around the world who live on less than US$1.90 a day? Or is it much more than a low income? Poverty means you have limited access to your basic needs, such as nutritious food, clean water, healthcare and education. You are also more likely to experience hunger and poor sanitation and develop preventable illnesses, diminishing your capacity to work. As this cycle repeats itself, it is clear to see why families living in poverty struggle to survive.

Pay it forward – One Another does good design, designed for good

One Another is an amazing online store working hard to provide unique handmade goods crafted by disadvantaged women in developing countries, acting on the principle that behind every one of its products there is a person and a story. The concept of One Another was born when partners Rick and Annette Carter were travelling through India with not-for-profit group Opportunity International Australia – the pair was inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of local women they had met, and they wanted to make a tangible difference to these lives.
