OPPORTUNITY is an initiative of AVSI-USA that links donors from the U.S. with the projects that AVSI supports around the world. Through Opportunity, Donors participate in the "adventure of life" as being lived out in circumstances far different from one's own. Donors are asked to make a long-term commitment to a trusted partner which is deeply embedded in the local community. Donors become "Friends", "Partners" or "Advocates" of the organizations along their path of service and growth.
Currently, Opportunity is focusing its attention on raising support and awareness for Crecemos, a community organization in the AVSI network that accompanies over 600 children and 400 mothers through comprehensive programs in nutrition, education, sports and personal development in the poorest neighborhoods of Oaxaca, Mexico.
