OUR MISSION at Empowering Communities Globally: For the Care of Children (ECG) is to reduce the impact of poverty in the world’s marginalized, vulnerated, and underserved populations by empowering communities through participation and education. Through compassionate and holistic early childhood care, development, and education we empower local primary caregivers providing support and access to learn about preventative healthcare, community development, child development and ways to strengthen protective factors. By elevating voices within communities, we encourage and support sustainable community and economic development.
