What We Do

We support and work closely with local, dedicated organisations in emerging market countries focused on solutions that integrate the voices and experiences of marginalised young people (age 10-24).

We recognise disadvantage takes multiple forms, and that girls, young women and non-binary youth often face the most discrimination. For these reasons and importantly, to most effectively support young people’s felt needs and future pathways, we are committed to approaching our work through an intersectional lens.

Keeping gender and inclusion at the heart of everything we do, our impact areas are: economic well-being, inclusive learning, and safe, healthy lives.

Prioritising Girls

Marginalised girls and young women are battling compound effects of multiple forms of inequality. They are the bottom of every social hierarchy and are least visible and least heard.

Multi-Faceted Support to Local Partners

We recognise that the obstacles marginalised young people face are interconnected, woven into the fabric of their families, communities, and societies, and require multiple, complementary strategies to address.

Sharing Knowledge and Building Collective Knowledge

EMpower works closely with grantee partners to provide support beyond financial assistance. This support is typically in areas such as girl-focused and/or gender equitable programming, monitoring and evaluation, fundraising, governance, and child and youth safeguarding.
