Family Empowerment

Our Business Launch Program shifts the narrative; it helps keep struggling families together.

 To date, we have enrolled over 400 families in our Business Launch Program in Ethiopia with an average increased income of approximately 300% — and many of these families now have 2-3 years of self-sufficiency under their belt! Not only does the program help families to thrive, but it ripples outward into the community as families grow their businesses, create even more jobs, and pour into the local economy.

Family Empowerment is more than just a process or program, it is family preservation and orphan prevention.



  • 225 graduates so far
