Key Focus Areas Leadership Development
There is a shortage of leaders in the developing world. Even the most talented individuals with the greatest potential often lack access to the tools and training they need to become leaders who can help others work their way out of poverty. Opportunity International believes real, sustainable change around the world will come from identifying and cultivating more leaders within our organization and the communities where we work.
