To Honor Your Mom, Invest in Mothers Far, Far Away
Similarly in Ghana, we see women like Edna Da Silva, a mother who opened a school with a loan from Opportunity International. Edna is now a leading figure in her community, providing education to most of the children in the village. This is the power of one mother changing the world; there are few forces more powerful.
Every year, Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the strength and resilience of moms like Felicitus and Edna, and their selfless efforts to lift up those around them. This Mother’s Day, honor your mom with a special tribute patch on the Global Opportunity Quilt; a digital quilt comprised of patches purchased by the public to honor influential women in their lives. With gifts starting at $5, you can select from one of 20 patch designs, or create your own, and dedicate it to a special woman with an honorary message. Each tribute patch donated can be shared digitally and will be added to Opportunity’s virtual quilt, symbolizing a community of empowerment and opportunity.
I'm proud to be part of Opportunity International, a global organization helping to empower women like Felicitus and Edna through financial services and training. I have seen firsthand the power of one mother to unlock the potential within herself, her family, and her community. This Mother’s Day, join me to Invest in One, Honor Mom.
