One out of every two people on this planet struggles to feed and educate their children. When powered by opportunity, they have a chance to work their way out of poverty and transform their lives. For 45 years, Opportunity International has provided the savings, loans, training and insurance that all people need to create a better future for their families and their communities.
About this project
Opportunity International invites you, your business and the Atlanta community to invest $250,000 in positive transformation by helping to create or sustain more than 700 jobs in 2015. And this is just the beginning of the positive change Atlanta can make - supporting 700 jobs will impact 3,500 lives immediately. Further good news: that number continues to grow as entrepreneurs hire members of their communities to help maintain their thriving businesses. Atlanta's impact by 2020 will result in more than 2,000 jobs and 10,000 lives transformed.
Your support will help
By contributing to Opportunity's Global Microfinance Initiative, you are helping to expand access to financial services to enable more people in 27 countries to secure savings, borrow capital for their businesses, receive training to develop professional and life skills, and to purchase insurance to protect their assets. With three billion people living on less than $2 a day around the world, our mission is to empower people to work their way out of chronic poverty, transforming their lives, their children's futures and their communities.
Opportunity International will use your gifts where they can have the greatest impact.
