Poverty poses numerous problems, throughout the world, every day. Almost half of the world’s population lives off less than US $2.50 per day. With such limited resources, most find access to decent education, proper nutrition, and safe living circumstances nearly impossible – and these negative side effects perpetuate into even larger problems. Without education, many would-be successful entrepreneurs lack the skills needed to advance their businesses and lift their families out of poverty. Without proper nutrition, the ability to concentrate and perform in a work environment is debilitated. Fortunately, Mentors International and YOU are able to change that.
Donations made to Mentors International facilitate the administration of small loans that entrepreneurs need to transform their businesses – but our efforts don’t end there. Loan recipients also receive individualized business classes and life skills (taught by experienced mentors) to ensure they possess the tools needed to succeed. Often as these entrepreneurs grow in greater self-reliance, they create jobs employing other individuals in their communities; not only changing their lives but empowering others to do the same. Just take a look at some of our entrepreneurs who have already accomplished such a feat! Read their success stories!
Help us in our mission to empower the world’s poor and help them grow in self-reliance. Your donations will continuously be felt in the lives of so many through our perpetual distribution model, whereby loans that are lent out, when repaid help fund new loans, to new recipients. You can assist us in our mission by making a donation here.
Support Mentors International by attending one of our events to learn more about our organization firsthand, and meet other compassionate individuals.
If you are unable to attend one of our events, but would still like to contribute, you can set up your own fundraising event. Any event – be it a summer cookout, golf tournament, or craft fair (the possibilities are endless) – can be turned into a fun way to raise money to help others. Simply charge a small attendance fee, or sell snacks and drinks at the event to raise funds for Mentors International. Informing your guests that their money will be used for a good cause is also a sure way to make your event a success!
