ABOUT US

ETCO-Empower the Community is a youth-led organization seeking to curb the rising numbers of crime, substance abuse and poverty through education, sports development, arts and business innovations for sustainable employment.

 

Throughout 2020 we have been quite successful in community outreach programs and notably in foods & non-food donations, community sensitization programs, sports and music talent search among other activities. Our solutions are strategically organized into various departments to enable us to attain both short and long term goals.

ETCO was founded on 1st January 2020 and registered on 20th July 2020 as a Community Based Organization (CBO).
