Empowerment Works, Inc.'s Fundraiser:

UgandaProject's Invisible Thread

Empowerment Works, Inc.'s Photo

THE STORY:

In light of political developments regarding the outlawing of homosexuality in Uganda over the last year, we decided not to put our students at risk by featuring them in videos with us.  Rather, we shot a music video of our song, Invisible Thread, and use it as a way to celebrate people all over the world who are fighting for their right to love whom they choose. 

We believe that education is the greatest deterrent to intolerance and hatred.  With your help, we can send four of our students through their final semester of college and help them to become the next generation of enlightened leaders in Uganda.

Starting Valentine's Day through the end of February, we'll be on a mission to raise $10,000 in school fees.  Please show your love by helping us to empower the humanitarians and activists of the future!
