To fight poverty, create opportunity.
Dean Karlan belives that poverty is a denial of choices and opportunities. Without the ability or option to participate actively in an economy and in society, people cannot work their way out of poverty.
At Opportunity International, we believe in the power of opportunity. We invest in millions of entrepreneurs around the world, equipping them with the tools and training they need to create sustainable change in their lives. This method of poverty alleviation affirms the potential of each person - and maintains dignity for all involved. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to participate effectively in society.
