What We Do

Empower For Hope is a non-profit based in Charlotte NC. We partner with local non-profits and artisan groups in Burundi and Charlotte. Locally we serve immigrants, refugees and their families by connecting them with local services to meet their needs, ESL conversation classes and aid in helping them develop their home-based business. Our goal together is to empower women, give the economic opportunities with dignity and the tools to combat extreme poverty. We do this by teaching them the vocational skills, life skills and building a community of peace and hope. We also raise support through selling their handcrafts as well as fundraising to provide medical care and humanitarian care.

Interesting Info

We support over 250 artisans and their families in Charlotte, NC and Bujumbura, Burundi combined.
1 in 7 people in Charlotte are Immigrants.
Our Goal is to empower and inspire 50-100 immigrant owned home based sewing businesses in Charlotte in 2020. We also want to build a medical clinic in Burundi.
