Babu Ji was the perfect location for our "Food for Thought" campaign dinner, being the best Indian restaurant in Melbourne, as well as India being a major nation where Opportunity International operates. Micro loans in Third World countries, with astonishing 98% payback rates (surely higher than in Melbourne). Donations to Opportunity International help with the funds pool. Andy Philp from Opportunity International told us they were assisting 3 million families in Asia, 2.2 million in India, and a huge impact in South America and Africa. Some 94% of loans go to women.
Mani Babuji was on hand to bless us with his generous hospitality and get behind this amazing cause. Mani himself came from humble beginnings in small Indian village, grew up on a farm and had a determination to never give up. Mani spoke about giving an opportunity to those who are not privileged. His passion is also to create a top notch restaurant where people can smile after a good meal (we were this night!). Mani has plans for a Food Truck, by which he intends to help the homeless as part of the Food Trucks' operation.
