Top Stories

giving back: darcy deane and opportunity international

through writing the book how great women lead with her mother, this seventeen-year-old got involved with an organization that provides microfinance loans to women working their way out of poverty.

CAUSE: High school student Darcy Deane's mother, Bonnie St. John, was the first African-American to win Olympic medals in ski racing—and she continued on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard, win a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford, and be appointed by President Clinton to the White House National Economic Council. She's clearly demonstrated a strong sense of leadership to her daughter, and now Darcy is poised to follow in her mother's impressive footsteps. After interviewing powerful women, such as Hillary Clinton, for the book that she recently wrote with her mother, Darcy partnered with Opportunity International, a charity that provides financial products and strategies to millions of people in the developing world. The organization focuses on helping women provide for their families by encouraging them to start and expand local businesses.
EFFECT: Over 2.5 million people have received loans in over twenty countries. Ninety-three percent of loan recipients are women, who are often underutilized in economic growth and underpaid.
GET INVOLVED: Opportunity International offers specific opportunities for students and young professionals—learn more about them here. You can also donate to the cause online.
