A Holistic Educational Program
Empowerment International's educational program is for some of the most at-risk, impoverished children in 3 extremely poor communities located outside of the colonial city of Granada, Nicaragua. Our holistic approach is breaking generational poverty, one child at a time. The children receive supplemental classes to support their public school classes. Home visits are an integral component where parents are encouraged to send their children to school and are mentored on how to support and enhance their children’s education, regardless of their own education.
Our peer-led supplementary tutoring is offered after school to the younger students and is supported by our high school and university students who have grown up in the program. Leadership skills are developed by using real-life situations while students lead various projects, share their own talents with their peers and tutor the younger girls and boys.
Our children receive medical and nutritional support as well as counseling. Integrated parental involvement is a key component to the success of each child in our program.
