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 40 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
Education is the single largest determining factor for future economic status. Yet, 130 million young people worldwide are not in school.
You can invest in education with Opportunity International, equipping school proprietors to provide accessible, high-quality education to children around the world. When we invest in schools and school proprietors, we are investing in the future - but we are also investing in the community today.
Schools hire local employees to teach, build, cook and serve. They bring in electricity, running water, paved roads and other infrastructure. They improve their communities right away, all the while educating and equipping the next generation to break free from the cycle of poverty for good.
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.
