Opportunity International equips families with the tools they need to journey out of poverty to a life in which they govern their own destiny.

Opportunity provides families with small loans to build income-generating businesses and enables women to train as health leaders, so they can improve the health of their families and local communities.

We provide school fee loans to parents to help them pay for their children’s education and loans to the leaders of community schools to build classrooms, buy books and computers and recruit qualified teachers. We help schools take a step-by-step approach to improving the quality of their teaching and educational outcomes for students.

And we empower women to end domestic violence by training them as PeaceMakers who provide counselling and support to women experiencing violence in their homes.
