A Holistic Educational Program
Empowerment International is a nonprofit located in Granada, Nicaragua. The educational program is for some of the most at-risk, impoverished children in 3 extremely poor communities located outside of the colonial city. Our holistic approach is breaking the cycle of generational poverty, one child at a time. Our children receive supplemental classes to support their public school classes. Home visits are an integral component of our work, 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 level.
Our supplementary tutoring program is offered after school for the younger students and is supported by our university students who have grown up in the program and volunteer to give back to their community. 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.
The participants receive medical and nutritional support as well as individual counseling as needed. Integrated parental involvement is a key component to the success of each child in our program where we have a 97% annual school retention rate!
