Equipping the poor to live sustainable lives that honor God


Christmas is just around the corner, and this year there is an opportunity to partner with Empowering Lives through giving alternative Christmas gifts! Providing a cow for a family in need or a training for a brewer looking to change can be the perfect way to give the gift of empowerment this Christmas. Gifts can be made in honor of a loved one, and you will receive a free printable Christmas card.

Click here to check out our gifts catalog, and learn more about how you can provide hope for a person in need this Christmas season! 



This year, our children from the Kipkaren and Ilula Children’s Homes will have a joint Christmas and New Year’s celebration. You can help make this celebration possible as all the children will gather for a time of rejoicing in Jesus’ birth and welcoming in the New Year in Kipkaren, Kenya.

$40 will provide one child with a Christmas dinner & a brand-new outfit!

When you give, you will be able to download an honor card that you can use to show you gave in someone’s honor. This will be available through your email donation receipt.
