The Organization for Poverty Alleviation and Development (OPAD) is an international non-profit and non-government organization. OPAD actively works toward poverty eradication and alleviation by promoting human rights, climate change, and sustainable development.
Our Mission is to mitigate the problems presented by poverty, promote positive climate change, and support international laws protecting humanitarian values across cultures.
Volunteering is a great way to become more involved in the community and gain valuable skills. Volunteers make a very valuable contribution to our work at OPAD, from local people volunteering as part of their training to established business people contributing their time to support our work.
OPAD needs your support in the challenge of fighting poverty. Your donation will go toward the time, advice, and financing of our team as well as materials used in assisting individuals living on the edge of marginalized communities. Your contribution can make great changes towards achieving sustainable peace and development.
OPAD was the perfect place to be an intern! I could tell they were not just a team, but also a family. I knew I was going to feel very comfortable and happy working with them, and that I would learn a lot!
Extremely activated, organized and updated. Also, the connections they have with the local community helped me get socialized easier.
I am very happy and feel very lucky that I am a part of this organization. Thank you OPAD for your trust, support and sincerity!
