According to global research, 385 million children are living in extreme poverty throughout the world. The debilitating results are disease, hunger, exploitation, abuse, illiteracy, and hopelessness. However, ZOE’s approach has proven that children living in poverty also hold the greatest capacity to create lasting solutions for their families and communities.
By investing in local, indigenous leaders in seven countries, ZOE’s distinctive, holistic model provides the vital relationships, training, and resources to empower young participants to overcome the isolation and stigmatization associated with extreme poverty. This three-year empowerment program leads to dignity, self-sustainability, and community transformation.
The cycle of poverty is stopped as you partner with a group of children who are eager to realize their God-given potential. Indigenous leaders and vulnerable children are empowered to develop sustainable solutions rather than being the recipients of handouts. Young people are developed into leaders and entire communities are transformed in the process.
