Our vision is to create a system of support for vulnerable children where they have access to education and healthcare, in a world free from violence, where they are empowered to not only reach their potential but to live their legacy of helping others.
There is no duty more important than ensuring that children’s rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear. ~Kofi Annan
We believe there is no better investment than supporting the education of children in the world. In developing countries we provide this support in several ways to help ensure a quality education. Through education, families are able to break the cycle of poverty.
Just one positive connection to a caring adult has been shown to make a difference in the success of a child. Through our Empower Youth Leadership Conferences and programs we provide that connection. Participants come together and learn skills that build confidence.
We know that without safe housing, medical services, proper nutrition, and a support system, children will not be able to focus on their learning. Without this support, even the most motivated student ends up leaving school.
Working in concert with local leaders and organizations we are able to support children and families who are victims of poverty, malnutrition, violence, and disaster to bridge the next steps in their survival and recovery.
