The power of community
Beduith, Colombia

Fed up with winter’s impact on the streets of her community, Beduith rallied her Trust Group to raise $7,200 for the local mayor’s street paving project that would benefit the entire neighbourhood.

Beduith’s story illustrates a consistently recurring reality ­— as Opportunity clients break free from poverty, they gain so much more than a steady income. Often, they find a hidden inner strength and become emboldened to take on responsibilities that benefit the community around them. With her community, Beduith has unleashed the power of opportunity to break down barriers, making their communities even safer.
