Empowers Africa welcomes donations. You can donate safely and securely with your credit card.

We are committed to having 100% of every donation go to the programs we support in Africa. We are able to offer this to donors because our administrative costs are entirely funded by our Board of Trustees.

Empowers Africa uses Stripe to process credit card donations. Stripe has very stringent security rules which may lead to declined credit card transactions. If you are experiencing trouble processing your donation, kindly contact Nadia Derelieva at (917) 328-1611 or via email: nadia@empowersafrica.org
