What we stand for
TechnologyOne Foundation is committed to making a difference to underprivileged and at risk youths in our communities, by empowering them to transform their lives and create their own pathways of success.
Our goal is to help 500,000 children and their families free themselves from poverty
The TechnologyOne Foundation is looking to break the cycle of poverty for generations by supporting an innovative microfinancing approach to charitable giving through Opportunity International Australia.
Through our partnership with Opportunity and its innovative approach to microfinance, we are transforming communities and helping families leave poverty behind. Our annual grant to Opportunity aims to help 500,000 children and their families free themselves from poverty over the next 15 years through microfinance. The TechnologyOne partnership with Opportunity will provide small loans to enable families to grow businesses, earn regular incomes and create safety nets for the future
Opportunity leverages donations to get on average 2.8 times the amount donated. For example, a $100 donation to Opportunity will enable a local partner to lend $280 to a family, which is enough to help one family start a business to build their resilience and economic stability. Since 98% of these small loans are repaid and then re-lent to other families, the impact creates a ripple effect within communities.
TechnologyOne Foundation partners with Fred Hollows Foundation
Together with the Fred Hollows Foundation, the TechnologyOne Foundation is continuing the work that Fred Hollows set out to do – restoring sight, fighting for change and empowering communities.
The Vietnam Child Eye Care program focuses on the development and adoption of a national eye care screening guideline.
Over 20% of Vietnamese school children are impacted by visual impairment, and two thirds of vision impaired children have never received an eye examination or do not wear spectacles.
Our commitment will improve eye health for all Vietnamese primary and secondary school children by encouraging healthy eye care practices to prevent visual impairment.
