A special thank you from Yasmin

By Jenny Dunn, Head of Marketing and Communications

A year ago, author and journalist, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown presented our BBC Radio 4 appeal, sharing her personal story of coming to England from Uganda, and being given the opportunity to fulfil her ambition.  She highlighted the importance of our work providing access to financial training, loans and support.  You may remembering hearing it, and can even listen again here 

The appeal raised an impressive £20,000 which has already been put to good use providing small business loans, financial training and support to hundreds of people who are now working towards a better future.   

Together we have achieved a great deal over the last year, and it’s your support that makes it possible. A year on we wanted to say thank you.

WATCH this special thank you message from Yasmin below:

The last few years have been challenging. Your continued support throughout has enabled us to keep doing the work we do - to keep providing life-changing opportunities through loans, training and support that equips people to work their own way out of poverty. 

On behalf of our clients, and all of us at Opportunity International, thank you
