Opportunity International Canada Delegation

Opportunity International Network is a global network of enterprises involved in micro finance.

It consists largely of two types of enterprises. One type is supporting members (SMs) and the other is implementing members (IMs). UOB is one of the implementing members. SMs are engaged in raising funds to support the activities and programs of IMs. There are six SMs. They are Opportunity International in US, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia and Singapore.

This week, February 13-20, OI Canada has sent a delegation of 20, including its Chairman and CEO, Mr. Bob Lawless, to visit UOB and to meet the staff and clients of UOB. Also, they visited Wellspring Academy, a Christian school, and held jointly a leadership forum for young entrepreneurs and established business leaders. The forum was named "Made in Rwanda Leadership Summit." Mr. Lawless was the key note speaker and there were three others who shared their perspectives on human capital, the only capital that lasts.

I met the delegation twice. First, I was asked to share the testimony on my life. Second, I was asked to share what God is doing through UOB. The Lord blessed many hearts through these presentations and it was a blessing to me also.

I pray that the Lord will continue to inspire them to be more actively engaged in the Kingdom work in any manner that is possible to them. - Jeffrey
