HOW THE OPPORTUNITY PROJECT HELPS

 

The Opportunity Project is a direct response to global inequality and its impact on the people of Honduras.

 

We provide targeted support to communities affected by poverty. To do this, we create initiatives that provide access to education, health and income. Our aim is to equip all members of the community - and particularly children and young people - with the tools to break the cycle of poverty.

FAQs

Will my donation be used effectively?

We are a small organisation and have extremely low administrative costs. Therefore, all donations go directly to our projects. Currently, our administrative costs amount to only 2.6%. This means that about 98.3% of your donation actually reaches the project. With other non-profit organisations, this figure is often only 70-85%. 

 

Can I receive a donation receipt?

Yes, as an officially recognised non-profit organisation, The Opportunity Project gemeinnützige UG is authorised to issue donation receipts in Germany. We send them out by email upon request, or at the end of the financial year.

 

What will my donation be used for?

All donations from the Running Challenge will be used to support our initiatives and thus have a direct impact on the people in Honduras: Thanks to your donation, primary school children, for example, receive access to clean drinking water, adequate sanitary facilities and a warm lunch at school every day.

 

​How can I take part in the Challenge?

Simply register using the form above and then create an account on the running app Strava. After your runs, we'll be delighted to receive a donation to The Opportunity Project. See our instructions above for more details.

 

What happens at the end of the running challenge?

Check the Strava app to see how many kilometres you have run for the people of Honduras. You can now proudly share this with your friends, family, employers or colleagues who have kindly agreed to sponsor you for your run (e.g. 1 € per km). You can simply transfer the collected donations here. If you like, you can also donate a small amount per kilometre yourself.

 

What happens if I don't reach my kilometre goal?

It doesn't matter, because being there is everything! You have enjoyed a lot of fresh air, improved your fitness and made a difference for the people of Honduras. We will be most appreciative if you help with a donation from yourself and/or from the people around you based on the kilometres you have reached.
