LIFT

It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving … Mother Theresa

Today, 389 million people, or 41%, of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa live on less than $1.90 per day. Access to education and health care resources are two key to lifting individuals and families out of chronic poverty and building the necessary skills to become self-reliant

Real Stories

Technical & Vocational Education Training (TVET)

One of ENA’s students learning sheet metal warping from a TVET instructor. 

Over the next five years our goal is to help 500 unemployed young adults receive job-specific technical training for work in vocational trades. The vision of our program is to build human capacity to meet labor market needs and private sector employment opportunities.

 

Education

We build schools, sponsor children’s education, provide technical and professional education for young adults, and teach adult literacy programs.

Micro-credit

We provide business and financial literacy training and access to financial resources for entrepreneurs, allowing them to start and successfully grow their businesses.

Community Training

Our community training initiatives focus on the most vulnerable and significantly reduce disease, suffering, and the disenfranchisement of the poor.
