In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Empower raised money to provide food and sanitary essentials for 241 orphans in Yaounde, Cameroon. Here is an overview.


Continuously striving to connect their needs to available resources


Who We Are

A scholarship fund created by students for students in need

Here at Empower, we are driven by the desire to herald positive change in our societies. We aim to accomplish this by raising money to send Cameroonian children to school. This way we give them invaluable tools to transform their futures and become contributing members of society. We break the mold by bringing you their stories and empowering their voices.

We bring to you their stories and ours

We often hear about orphans and struggling children, a narrative filtered either through the lens of impersonal statistics or utterly bleak distress. We seek to connect you with the entirety of their realities. We show you the good, the bad, the sad, the happy, what they have lost, and what they hope for . Most importantly, we show you their dreams and aspirations. It is important to us that you hear directly from them.
