Empowering The Poor, Inc (ETP) is a nonprofit, nongovernmental, and non partisan organization with offices in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire.
ETP operates in Sub Saharan Africa, the only region in the developing world where poverty is increasing, while health and education are worsening. We target communities where health centers, running and clean water, schools, and latrines are almost non-existent.
We target communities where preventable diseases such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and malnutrition are widespread, while illiteracy and child mortality rate are high.
Through these programs we cultivate the pathway for self reliance, dignity, sustainable economic growth, peace and the integration of Africa in the mainstream global economy.
We firmly believe that the poor should become a true participant rather being disenfranchised and marginalized.
