What we see
Poverty is a thief
According to Poverties.org, “Nearly all possible effects of poverty have an impact on children’s lives”. Children suffer the effects of poverty in all aspects of their lives. From low birthweight and poor health to delayed development, lack of education, direction and purpose. Due to these factors, children born into poverty are likely to stay poor throughout their lives, perpetuating the cycle.
Empower Hope sees poverty for what it truly is: an identity thief, stripping a person's identity and destroying hope.
We believe that all people were created equal in the eyes of God, but we also know that all people do not have equal opportunities. Empower Hope gives a face to the invisible by elevating, equipping and empowering those in poverty.
Through discipleship, mentoring, critical thinking, life skills training, and entrepreneurial cultivation, we equip indigenous leaders to walk alongside vulnerable children through each stage of their development to empower them to rise above their circumstances.
By providing preparation and opportunity, the cycle of poverty is broken in the individual's life and a new path of purpose is created.

The 3-E Focus: EQUALITY + EDUCATION + ENTREPRENEURSHIP = Empowered Hope

Every vulnerable child is created with value and a unique purpose. EMPOWER HOPE supports and trains local young adults (Ambassadors) to lift the veil of invisibility from these children (Protegés) to elevate their view of themselves and their futures.
EMPOWER HOPE provides solutions to the gaps in local education by creating programs to help students develop to their fullest potential.
EMPOWER HOPE prepares and partners with young adults to lead their own companies. Through training, small business loans and one-on-one mentoring, entrepreneurs become economically empowered to become leaders and change-makers in their communities.
