FAMILY EMPOWERMENT DAY
is a day to raise awareness and funding to help families around the world empower themselves out of poverty.
Families embody the heart and soul of any society. Families nurture, inspire, and enable individuals and communities to thrive. Unfortunately, families experiencing poverty face mounting pressures and limitations that make it incredibly difficult for them to stay together and flourish.
We’ve learned over the years that empowering families with sustainable tools and resources is the most effective way to end extreme poverty
and keep families together. Creating sustainable income not only provides for the needs of the whole family, it also activates the potential of the next generation while reshaping entire communities.
We have already helped over 400 families with our Family Empowerment pilot program in Ethiopia with over 96% of families becoming self-sustaining business owners and community contributors. We are beginning to extend our family empowerment efforts to more countries with a vision to empower 100,000 families by 2030
. Join us on May 7, 2019 to empower families around the world
to end extreme poverty for themselves and their communities. Together, we can raise the funds necessary to help millions of people experience life after poverty. Will you join us in this simple act of doing good and tell others? We can and we must do this together. Let’s End Poverty with Family.
