The Whole Child
Empowering Education International believes that long-lasting, true change is only possible when the needs of the whole child are addressed. Believing that education is key in the future of any child, EEI begins with making sure the child receives everything needed to go to school and receive support with that education. However, only addressing this one area of the child’s development would be incomplete and insufficient. EEI works with local churches, ministries and organizations, and volunteers to meet the physical needs as well. Children are regularly visited and checked-on to make sure they are receiving the nutrition and medical attention needed for them to grow healthily. Finally, we believe the most important change happens in the heart. Children in the EEI program are connected with their local evangelical church and pastor to be taught and shepherded as they grow in the love, truth, and hope of Jesus Christ.
