At Opportunity International, we’ve worked for 42 years to achieve our mission of giving people in the developing world the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Now we have a stronger way of sharing that mission with the world.
Opportunity International announced last week unified messaging that clarifies our vision, mission, motivation, values and methods throughout our worldwide organization.
Our work hasn’t changed—just our way of sharing it with the world.
