Zoe Empowers


The Western North Carolina Conference is partnered with zoe empowers to assist children across the world.

380 million children are trapped in the cycle of poverty. Empowering all areas of life is the only way out. 

Orphans and vulnerable children living in extreme poverty are abused, sick and isolated from their community. Handouts and begging helps them to survive temporarily. Our solution addresses all their challenges, across eight areas of life, equipping them to overcome poverty with their own efforts—and for good.

NEW: Check out this podcast where Mark Konen describes his journey with ZOE Empowers. 

Poverty impacts 8 areas of life:

  • Malnutrition
  • Homelessness
  • Illness
  • Illiteracy
  • Inability to Earn Money
  • Exploitation
  • Stigmatization
  • Hopelessnes
