Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership

The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership is a forum created to fulfill Empower African Children's promise to the orphaned and vulnerable children it serves. That promise is to provide transformative and globally connected learning experiences that prepare our students for a lifetime of servant leadershiequipping, and empowering a new generation in their ability to identify and implement relevant solutions.

Through the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, the opportunity to change the trajectory of someone's life becomes real and personal. There is a great and lasting satisfaction of what is achieved when people of different circumstances choose to work together for the betterment of all. Even a decade of training and development cannot close the cycle of poverty for our graduating students and young professionals without creating one more transformative learning experience. We must bridge the gap in job and capital creation. To do that, we must demonstrate the value of shared knowledge as a mechanism for accelerating personal and economic development.

Through the Holistic Care Program, Empower African Children helps meet the immediate physical needs, providing food, shelter, clothing, and medical care to orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda. But there's more to childhood development than having basic needs met. That's why we go further than most humanitarian aid efforts. We strive to also meet their educational needs, providing school fees, supervision, and faith-based psychological/social support for children between the ages of 6 and 18. These children are under our care until they complete their education. Our holistic care giving approach - with a focus on emotional and spiritual development in addition to meeting physical needs - is instrumental in creating community-minded citizens and responsible, educated adults.

Population(s) Served

Empower African Children's secondary school is intended to serve 400 orphans and vulnerable children from Uganda and East Africa. Envisioned as a magnet school emphasizing the arts, technology, and healthcare, the school will help children find their passions, discover their voices, develop leadership skills, and gain self-confidence.

The state-of-the-art, environmentally green, physical plant is also intended as a hub for community involvement and employment. It will house sound recording and performance studios, health care and technology classrooms.

We believe this to be a scaleable model which can be replicated elsewhere throughout Africa. To accomplish these goals, Empower African Children is assembling a team of local, regional, and international partners to provide the best education, training and access to opportunities in an ever-evolving world.

To the melodic tones of standing drums, with dramatic choreography, bright, layered rhythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals, Spirit of Uganda brings to life the sounds and movements of East Africa.
From January through May 2012, Spirit of Uganda will return to North America with its riveting performances of music and dance for audiences of all ages.

Under the artistic direction of Peter Kasule(about_leadershiSpirit of Uganda is Empower African Children's professional training and touring program. On tour, 22 vibrant performers, ages 8-18, share the histories, legends and beliefs of East Africa and introduce some of the new and dynamic music and dance forms that are being created now.

Ambassadors for Uganda's 2.4 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africa's next generation as they promote awareness of Uganda's dual crises of AIDS and civil war, and raise funds to support themselves and others in their homeland.

Population(s) Served

A central element of our plan to equip African children to become leaders in their own societies involves giving them an education that goes far beyond what they typically receive at home. Through our U.S. scholarship program, we identify some of Africa's most talented students and enroll them in a stateside university. This substantial investment allows these individuals to grow personally while attaining important job and life skills - which they can then use to contribute to the development of their home country.
