Orange is a bold invigorating color suggesting strength, endurance and success. It represents enthusiasm, encouragement and determination. It is the banner of success carried by children released from poverty in Jesus’ name.
“When a woman is given an option to change her life, she invests 90% back into her family. As a result, she and her family prosper, breaking out of the cycle of poverty. She then looks outward to her community, growing as a leader, lifting the quality of life for her neighbors and inspiring others to join her movement to do the same.”
- Vicki Escarra, CEO of Opportunity International
