In cases where donations exceed what is needed for a specific
initiative, we promise to honor your generosity by using
your gift where it will have the most impact on building sustainable livelihoods for those living in poverty.
For millions of women and girls in the developing world, life is defined by exclusion and inequities. Women perform 66% of the world’s work but only earn 10% of the world’s income. Meanwhile, 130 million young girls aren’t in school—making it virtually impossible to end the generational poverty plaguing their families. From a young age, women are barred from the tools and resources they need to thrive and ignite lasting, generational change. We envision a different future.
At Opportunity International, we create opportunities for women by providing financial services, training, and support to help them grow their incomes, send their children to school, and end extreme poverty once and for all. Families are escaping poverty at unprecedented rates: in fact, more than a billion people have been lifted out of poverty over the last three decades. We are making progress. But we cannot stop. We turn our eyes and hearts now to the millions still facing the uncertainty of tomorrow, struggling to break free from the grip of poverty.
Thank you for empowering women and girls in Africa who are working hard to build a better future for themselves. You are helping to transform lives.
