The mission of the NZE foundation is to personally interact and positively impact the people of Uganda by providing educational programs that encourage self-empowerment and that will bring the students of Uganda a brighter future, full of opportunities. The goal of NZE is not to provide handouts, but rather, to provide a hand up, allowing Ugandans to obtain the lives they desire for themselves and their communities. NZE was designed to help those who want to help themselves. The heart of NZE is to empower and love everyone who comes into contact with the organization. One should walk away from a class, a speech, or a simple conversation with a member of NZE and have the words “I am empowered” trailing from their lips. NZE does not want to be placed in a box, for like any one human being we are multi-faceted, “I am” so many things, and so NZE too, “IS” so many things.
