Innnovative Programs

Ultra-poor women face social exclusion, lack confidence and opportunities to plan for their futures.


Reaching wider and deeper to eliminate poverty.

A subset of extreme poverty are those living in ultra-poverty who are unable to meet the most basic of needs including food, shelter, and clothing. Families living in extreme or ultra-poverty often need more dedicated time, more guidance, and specialized products and services.

And that’s where Opportunity International Canada comes in. Our Innovative Programs, reach families across the poverty spectrum with access to products and services that will help them break free from generational poverty.

With your help, we are seeing lasting, sustainable change .

That’s the power of opportunity!
