Over the past ten years, we have provided orphaned and vulnerable children the opportunity to receive a transformative education, so these students can realize their full potential and become future leaders in their country and across the world.
Empower African Children is dedicated to transforming the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda. The organization accomplishes this by providing scholarships that deliver a transformative education, global connections and prepare students for a lifetime of influence. Empower invests in high potential youth who are working to create a better future for themselves and others in Africa
A central element of Empower African Children’s mission involves providing young people with an education that goes far beyond what they typically receive from a traditional education in Uganda. The Scholarship Program allows some of Uganda's most promising students to receive an education through the post-secondary level and encourage these individuals to grow personally while attaining important leadership and life skills. The education they receive and skills they obtain, they then use to contribute to the development of their home country.
Each scholarship student must complete a thorough application process and screening that determines academic, character, leadership, and career potential. Once selected, scholarship students receive full financial support including tuition, books, room and board, clothing, requirements and health care.
Empower African Children initially supports students at a private secondary boarding school. Upon graduation from secondary school, Empower assists students with identifying a career path that suits their individual interests and provides them with a post-secondary education to help prepare them for this path. Following post-secondary graduation, Empower helps students transition into a career where they can make a positive influence on society.
