The Power of Economic Empowerment

The Power of Economic Empowerment

Economic Empowerment Is Not a Temporary Solution

Children’s Cup’s Economic Empowerment initiatives build on our core child sponsorship program by equipping young adults with skills development training, character development, leadership training, and job readiness.

You don't believe in temporary solutions, and neither do we. That's why we provide a vehicle for small business owners and beyond to empower, not enable, the future leaders of the communities in which you invest.

Character Development, Job Training, & Job Placement

Economic Empowerment is the fourth and final element of the Children’s Cup Strategy and aims to empower sponsored teenagers to pursue their God-given callings. Sponsored teens are equipped with relevant skills that the local market demands, such as work ethic, integrity, honesty, and problem solving abilities: and they are also exposed to Biblical financial principles.

Such training opportunities are based on trade-specific courses respective to each market in which Children’s Cup operates. The result empowers each teen with the opportunity to develop into a strong and thriving leader in their community through job readiness and character development.

What philosophy drives the Economic Empowerment program?

At Children’s Cup we believe in giving a hand up rather than a hand out. With your support we serve as your hands and feet to empower locals in our service areas to “fish for themselves.”

As teenagers are empowered to dream about and believe for tomorrow, a new hope is found in their hearts. Ten of the 26 students who participated in the most recent Economic Empowerment camp decided to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and six of them chose to be water baptized! 

The power of Economic Empowerment is seeing sponsored children become self-sufficient, Christ-centered, strong leaders. This pays forward the investments that donors, volunteers, and team members have made in them—ultimately creating a sustainable change in their communities.
