Opportunity : A Unique Giving Program to Share in the Adventure of Life



OPPORTUNITY is an initiative of AVSI-USA to link 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 ones own.


Donors are asked to make a long-term committment to one of our exceptional institutions. Each is a trusted

partner of AVSI and 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 rasing 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.
