Project Empower


Hi everyone!

We cordially invite you to support the upcoming launch of Project Empower! Project Empower is a pilot program we are kicking off in Africa to empower youth to launch their own social enterprises, generating income for themselves while positively impacting their communities! We are starting in Africa and will ultimately expand to other developing countries in need such as those in South & East Asia.

OPPORTUNITY: There are 1.2 billion young people (ages 15-24) in the world and 87% of them live in developing countries. 70% of these youth live below the poverty line on less than $2 a day and will remain stuck unless we give them real opportunities to succeed. But if we empower kids to launch their own social enterprises (businesses with a social mission), they will not only lift themselves out of poverty but also positively impact their communities. This is the mission of Project Empower.

We would appreciate any donation you are able to make to support the launch of Project Empower. You will be able to see a direct impact of your funds as we’ll be sharing stories and pics of the kids along the way on our Facebook page: “Like” our page so you can get updates!

PROJECT EMPOWER: Last year, we worked with a nonprofit to help to build a high school in a rural village in Ghana. Early this year, we equipped it with computers. Now, we are launching a pilot program to empower the kids to launch their own social businesses, modeling them after those that have already proven successful in the developing world, while providing mentorship support and startup microloans. This will have triple benefits as kids will:
1. Learn critical skills for success in life whether they go on to attend college, become entrepreneurs or both
2. Generate income for themselves and their families
3. Simultaneously address key social problems in their communities

We invite you to open your hearts and minds and join us for an evening of great times, with great friends and great purpose! Hope to see you!!

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill

Much love,
