Our prayers have been answered and our dreams are becoming a reality. The Empower International Academy is a secondary level boarding school that was conceived to bring a Christ-centered international standard education to Uganda for members of the African Children’s Choir and beyond. We are very excited to have completed the construction of phase I and announce the opening of the school in February, 2020. We are also extremely excited to introduce our school principal, Benjamin Opondo. Benjamin, a Kenyan native, has just relocated to Uganda from Birundi where served as the principal of Gitega International Academy.
During his time at Gitega, Benjamin led the academy to full international accreditation to become one of Birundi’s most trusted schools. Benjamin implemented policies and procedures to manage everything from procurement processes to curriculum scope and significantly boosted student enrollment. Benjamin is a solid academic leader with a pastor’s heart and we believe he will lead Empower International Academy to become one of Uganda’s top secondary schools. Please join us in welcoming Benjamin to the Music for Life family.

We thank God that He has brought us this far. We’ve been working with amazing partners like Empower African Children, USAID/ASHA, Ecclesia Houston, Living Water International, Engineering Ministries International (EMI) KWaYa, and many friends with generous hearts to get to this point.
