EmpowerKids Foundation

India is fourth among the top 10 nations with the highest numbers of out-of-school children at primary level. Furthermore, the rate of school drop-outs amongst students is very high. One of the main reasons behind this is poverty. When earning a livelihood and taking care of the members of the family becomes a primary matter of concern in one’s life, education stands a little or, very often, no chance of pursuance. For the underprivileged people in India, education is perceived as a high-priced luxury, and this negative outlook continues on with every new generation.

Our organization, EmpowerKids Foundation has a primary purpose to help underprivileged kids in developing countries. These kids are those from laborer workers that don't have a consistent streamline of income and can not afford education. We started with a program that supported Kids in Grade 3 at B.P.M School in Jamshedpur, India.

This year we've started sponsoring kids from Odisha (formerly Orissa) in India and started one tuition center named Talnuagaon Center supporting 30 boys and 30 girls at the elementary level, in after-school private tutoring programs with two teachers. We also have opened another tuition center in Adityapur where we prepare kids for government residential middle and high schools. 
Any donations would be welcomed towards this initiative to help us reach our goal. Donations go straight to the CEO who disperses the fund's immediately for these causes.

We are a 100% volunteer driven non-profit organization. You can read about here at www.empowerkidsfoundation.org

Your help and support would mean a lot to us! Please consider making a donation today.

Thank you for your support.
