The Youth Empowerment Fund is an important part of Children International's comprehensive youth program. Every year the Youth Council in each of Children International's sponsorship agencies around the world votes on where to direct the funds. Children International's President Jim Cook notes, "This project is just one example of the positive outcomes when youth are given a safe place to go with caring adults and constructive activities. Our youth are working to make a positive change in the world around them."
Mirriam, a youth participant in the project sums it up, "We are happy to see the project which we started. It is a success. Many people are benefiting, and personally I am happy with what we are doing through Children International."
