Orphans have the power to end extreme poverty, even in unordinary times.

Orphans have the power to end extreme poverty, even in unordinary times.

This year was especially hard for orphaned and vulnerable children living in extreme poverty. Now more than ever, they need hope.

380 million children are trapped in the cycle of poverty. Empowering all areas of life is the only way out.

Orphaned and vulnerable children living in extreme poverty are abused, sick and isolated from their community. Handouts and begging helps them to survive temporarily. Our solution addresses all their challenges, across eight areas of life, equipping them to overcome poverty with their own efforts—and for good.

“In working with orphaned and vulnerable children in life-threatening poverty, Zoe Empowers has the greatest transformation, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of investment of any program that we have seen.”
