Whatever money is made at Opportunity International’s La Emprendedora School goes back into its programs—a promise that made a life-changing impact on actress Malin Akerman during a recent Insight Trip to Nicaragua.
The November issue of InStyle magazine features Malin sharing the deep connections she made with Opportunity International clients during that trip, as well as a visit to Tanzania. InStyle is distributed in the United States and 17 other countries and has a total circulation of nearly 1.3 million.
“Seeing these communities struggle makes me want to help as much as is humanly possible,” Malin said.
Less than 10 percent of rural youth graduate high school in Nicaragua. But La Emprendedora teaches the basics—reading, writing and arithmetic—while training the students for careers in tourism and agriculture, the region’s fastest growing industries.
