EMPOWER Development is an active synergy of community
development projects initiated by residents from communities all across the earth. Project coordinators are members
of the local community who are acutely aware of neighborhood needs and are able
to identify appropriate, sustainable solutions.
EMPOWER Development collaborates with coordinators to build project capacity
and scale up the project’s impact to national and global levels.

together, that would otherwise remain isolated and under-resourced.

- Work with projects to build strong management
- Develop solid monitoring and evaluation
- Ensure that individual projects are effective,

- Expand projects to affect whole communities and
