What Motivates Us
We see the devastation that poverty causes; spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and economical. Poverty steals a person's identity and strips a person of purpose, self-worth, and vision, leaving them without hope. We've seen the devastating effects of a hand-out mentality, which strips a person of their dignity and leaves them feeling incapable and insufficient. We need a change. Our vision is for a hand-up approach equipping each person to become fully empowered.
By investing in children, we invest into our future. We believe that by equipping young adults and empowering orphans and vulnerable children, they will become the next generation of leaders.
They are our future. They will be the change.
What differentiates us
After pouring billions of dollars into 'helping' the poor, poverty is still ravaging the lives of millions of people throughout the world. Humanitarian aid has hurt more than helped. Aid is not the answer, empowering the poor is.
Empower Hope's TEMBEA NAMI~Walk With Me Generational Mentorship Model aims to break the cycle of poverty by equipping young adults to invest in the lives of vulnerable children empowering them to create a new path for their future. Where there was once no hope of a way out, there is now a path to purpose.
We create generational change by focusing on the four essential components of a holistic approach to poverty alleviation:
- Local: Equipping indigenous people to serve their communities
- Long Term: Walking with a child through their lives, 'never aging out'.
- Scalable: Model drives exponential growth
- Sustainable: Partnering in Business for Purpose to create sustainability for the individual and for Empower Hope
This comprehensive approach creates the structure for change to thrive.
