THE OPPORTUNITY CHALLENGE
The Opportunity Challenge is an innovative fundraising challenge aimed at young people between the ages of 10 and 18 to empower and educate them about fighting global poverty.
Starting with a loan of $10 from their parents or caregivers, kids are encouraged to do what they can to make it grow – perhaps buying a bucket and sponge to wash cars or buying ingredients to bake and sell cupcakes – the ideas are endless!
With the income they earn from their ‘micro-enterprise’, they then pay back the original loan and donate the profits to Opportunity so that together, we can help families in developing countries start their own small businesses, earn incomes and leave poverty behind.
It’s kids modelling microfinance to give microfinance!
Check out The Opportunity Challenge Toolkit for tips on what type of business to run, steps on how to get your business up and running, and how to donate your profits at the end of the Challenge.
