EMpower’s work stretches across the world, touching the lives of young people and communities in 15 emerging market countries. Young people’s voices and experiences shape all that we do.
Through the eyes of young people participating in programs supported by EMpower, we can see their realities, personal growth and leadership in making change happen. Through the stories of our grantee partners, we better understand their challenges, solutions, and organisational development.
We are proud to share stories from young people and our partners that highlight the positive impact young people are having in their communities and beyond. Check out the stories below to see how our grantee partners inspire, innovate, and create a brighter future for young people.
