Be an Ambassador

Be an Ambassador

Speak out for the most vulnerable children in Africa. Spread awareness in your community. Be a voice for the voiceless. “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9

Introduce us to your Church

Church partnerships are fundamental to our mission and we are vital to the mission of the Church. Talk with your church’s missions pastor or committee about partnering with us. If your church would like more information or to discuss a partnership, Wilson can come to visit or speak with your church.

If your church supported your trip, why not send a thank you video to your church while you’re in Africa, or even try a live Skype or FaceTime with your congregation! This can be a great start to a relationship between the church in Africa and America as well.

Child Sponsor Advocate

Be an advocate for children and find sponsors. Share about the power of sponsorship to change a child’s life. Whether sharing with one person over a cup of coffee or gathering a group together to share, you can help get more children sponsors! Facebook and Instagram are also powerful tools to advocate for children who need sponsors. If anyone has questions or would like to sponsor a child not on the website, contact our sponsorship department at sponsorship@empowerachild.org.

Start an Empower a Child Group

Head up a club or group in your high school, college or community. As a team, you all commit to raising money and poverty awareness by organizing an event each year in your local area.

Sell Jewerly

Sell scarves, earrings, and necklaces made by local Ugandan women at your hometown church, coffee shop, or craft fair. The funds generated by the sales go back to support more women’s empowerment programs in the village. Email our women’s director for more information here.

Share your Skills

If you have a particular skill such as photography, graphic design or writing, you can impact the children and families in East Africa right from your home computer by helping the U.S. office! We also need interns to help with social media, sponsorship and much more! Email our volunteer coordinator for more information volunteer@empowerachild.org.
