people benefiting from trafficking prevention
4,915,462 families in India and 1,119,662 families in Indonesia are currently accessing the small loans and financial services that can turn their business ideas into reality. With a sustainable income, these families can invest in the essentials—food, healthcare, sanitation, safe shelter, and education—that allow them to leave poverty behind for good.
The awareness programs and training provided by Community Health Leaders are resulting in improved health and cleaner neighbourhoods, helping prevent health emergencies and reducing the expenses on healthcare. Opportunity’s first cohort of health leaders in Indonesia has completed their initial training and six-month internships.
Opportunity’s partners in Education Finance currently have 51,362 active loans in Asia. These loans include school fee loans and school improvement loans, offered through both long-standing and more recent partners. Our cumulative child impact in Asia has almost doubled in the past six months; more than one million children are now benefiting.
As part of Operation Red Alert, the Safe Village Program is addressing sex trafficking in India by teaching girls and their families how to identify and avoid human trafficking situations. Operation PeaceMaker supports women and children experiencing domestic violence with access to human rights education, essential legal aid, and counselling services to help create safer communities.
