Mission in Action

Founded in 2001, Empowerment WORKS (EW) is a social change organization transforming the way the world sees and responds to poverty--in all its forms, including ecological, intellectual, and spiritual.


Harnessing the power of collaboration to build a healthier, culturally-rich, biodiverse future, EW engages a cross-sector network of Partners in Empowerment (PIE) united in support of local solutions through creative media and impact forums, such as Pulse of the Movement webcasts, The Global Summit, and Artists in Action events.

In the world's economically challenged communities, EW's asset building approach, 7 Stages to Sustainability (7SS) honors local heritage, and promotes sustainable livelihoods with the exchange of vital skills and technology.  
Through this holistic mission, Empowerment WORKS inspires people across the globe to realize the value of their existing knowledge, unique talents and our collective potential to change the world.
