Dr. Shehla Ebrahim has joined hands with Opportunity International!

A portion of the proceeds received for treatments performed at our practice are donated to Opportunity International to help provide financial services to women living in poverty around the world.

We are reaching out to impoverished, hard-working women around the globe by providing micro-financing, training, and counsel.

Only 30% of the world’s kids are able to attend school.

There is a significant worldwide need for non-government schools in developing countries.

In addition, we have found that when people start schools in their own area, the whole community benefits.

Additionally, the proprietors have a more vested interest in the school because it is also their business.

Edu-finance is a loan program that provides loans to low-income private schools in marginal neighbourhoods in the Dominican Republic.

Teachers and proprietors receive loans, as well as business and financial training, to help them improve the quality of education and the management of their private schools.

This program also helps teachers improve their teaching skills and knowledge about personal finances.

The schools grow their teacher base from the local population, which further provides jobs and higher education for adults in the community.

$5000 provides a loan for a school and will support the education of 150 children. 

Dr. Ebrahim is thrilled to announce that ONE school has been funded.  The donation from Ambleside Dermedics has been matched and together 150 children will now receive an education.

With your assistance, this is just one way that Dr. Ebrahim and Opportunity International are assisting women overcome the inherent obstacles of poverty and build a more stable, secure, and fulfilling life.
