Raise money for Opportunity International Canada
Opportunity International Canada designs, delivers, and scales innovative solutions to transform the lives of those living in poverty through sustainable livelihoods and education. Made up of a global network of change-making organizations, Opportunity International strives towards a world where everyone is afforded equal opportunity to live a life with dignity and purpose. It was founded with the belief that the marketplace can be used as a channel and means of economic vitality for poor communities.
The unique approach works from the bottom up to combat poverty at the roots by establishing a firm foundation through sustainable livelihoods rather than a top-down approach through aid. Microfinance, the use of microcredit and financial services, is employed as a means of poverty alleviation that empowers the poor to drive economic progress. Opportunity International seeks to make an impact that is far-reaching, holistic, and transformative for clients, their families, their communities, and their futures.
We know that behind every target and every statistic are individuals who don’t need hand-outs our long-term subsidies. They are families like our own, with incredible work ethic and big aspirations for their children – families who only need an opportunity to work their way out of poverty. Families like that of Doris in the Dominican Republic:
