Children begin their journey to empowerment by joining a supportive ZOE working group of 60-100 of their peers. For three years, ZOE empowers each group with skills training and resources. Once-vulnerable children then graduate as self-reliant young men and women able to provide for themselves and their siblings. ZOE currently has over 28,000 children transforming their lives in seven countries. Through ZOE, these children will find hope, become empowered, and prepare to lead their communities.
Stonebridge UMC partners with ZOE with financial fundraising and commitments, as well as annual trips to meet those we are sponsoring. Our current partnership is with a working group in Malawi, Africa.
