About Us

At Child Empowerment International, our mission is to reduce the cycle of poverty in areas of civil unrest through empowering and educating marginalized children.

Child Empowerment International works in war-torn geographies to provide education and health care for children living primarily in refugee and displaced people camps. CEI has been providing education and experiences for children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other challenges related to war trauma and violent experiences for the past 20 years, including the establishment of day schools for children without access to education either within refugee centers or within the communities in which they reside.

The overall care and education provided by CEI structures a resistance to creating long-term dependency among children; the overriding goal creates opportunities for each child to reach self-actualization, self-reliance and self-sustainability. This is accomplished through empowering children to reach maximum potential via higher education or vocational training and other life skills.
