Empower Projects empowers disadvantaged communities to take charge of their own development so that they are socially and economically self-reliant.
They believe that when it comes to sustainable development, local communities know best. They know what they would like to change in their communities and understand the challenges they face. Empower’s role is not simply to “teach them how to fish” but to help them organise and take action on their own development priorities. They currently support grassroot initiatives in Malawi and Sri Lanka.
