Empower Tigray was founded by a collective of international Tigrayan professionals from various backgrounds in response to the war and genocide waged on Tigrayan people on November 4, 2020.  Empower Tigray is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization in the US with a purpose to effectively support for an humanitarian aid to the Tigrayan people, and promote the economic development of Tigray through education. The word Empower Tigray fully encompasses the mission and vision of our organization.

Our mission is to support vulnerable children in Tigray, who are affected during the war, go to school by empowering their parents or guardians financially. Making any contribution to the organization will qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
