Education that Empowers

EdPowerment’s Fiduciary Commitment to You

EdPowerment believes in a fully transparent and honest accounting of all its financial transactions.  U.S. oversight and variance analysis of expenses and receipts on an ongoing basis ensure that all monies reach their intended beneficiary.

 Support from EdPowerment’s founder exceeds all administrative costs, allowing 100% of contributions to directly fund EdPowerment’s programs.  EdPowerment targets these funds to achieve the most lasting and ripple impact in the communities we serve.

Expenses:

In 2018, EdPowerment completed a girls’ hostel on the second floor of one of KIWOCE’s existing classroom buildings. This was an exception to EdPowerment’s funding norms that do not include major capital projects. We took this step to protect the structural integrity of the existing 1st floor building and more importantly to allow more girls to take advantage of KIWOCE’s skills training program in security and comfort.
