Why We Exist:
To transform the lives of inner city children, break the cycle of hopelessness, and end child poverty.
What We Do:
Within each of our core impact programs and projects, we work hard to:
- Inspire children to dream big, and to rise above their circumstances.
- Instill values and teach children to do the right thing
- Provide new experiences and environments that inspire kids to unlimited possibilities
- Provide positive role models that build relationships with every child
- Build hope by celebrating the special days in a child's life such as Christmas and birthdays
- Remove barriers by providing door to door transportation to all activities
- Empower youth to be role models and provide opportunities to lead
Our Vision: To restore hope to 100,000 Canadian children each week, by the year 2040.
Every Saturday over 1300 children between the ages of three to twelve, are bused in from Hamilton, to experience a dynamic 90 minute life-changing program. Each week over 2300 children receive home visits by a member of our volunteer visitation staff. Visitations provide an opportunity for each volunteer to role model positive behavior and also to provide any support the children and family may need, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.
The Joy & Hope of Haiti is a Hamilton based volunteer group that raises funds through events for building elementary schools in Haiti, and travels regularly to the north of Haiti, one of the worldÕs most poverty stricken countries, to help build these schools. Education gives these impoverished children hope and without education, these children will never acquire the knowledge and skills needed to escape this cycle of poverty!

EMPOWER GLOBAL (empowerglobal.ca) GAMBADE MEDICAL CLINIC IN HAITI
Empower Global is a registered Canadian charity that plans and implements projects in a number of countries including Haiti. One of these projects in Haiti is the Gambade Medical Clinic.

You can help the people of Gambade build a permanent Medical Clinic that provides basic health services for their community. Your donation will help prevent needless child deaths, reduce the maternal mortality rate in that region, protect children from preventable diseases and improve community health. Your gift will contribute to empower community members to manage, maintain and sustain their health clinic and its services.
