We know violence. We have seen the terrible effects of hatred and anger and prejudice. But we also know hope. And Nelson Mandela's beautiful words - that the most powerful weapon is not a gun or a bomb, but rather eduation - remind us that the world can change. Violence isn't the answer. Education is.
At Opportunity International, we believe in the power of education to change the world. And it's this belief that motivates us to invest in schools and students around the world. We know that by equipping the next generation of students with an education, we are arming them to fight against oppression, suffering and poverty. And that is how we create lasting change.
