Green Empowerment doesn't just provide renewable energy and clean water in the most remote places of the world, they also improve the environment in the process. That's why I chose to volunteer at their offices once a week. I love the people that work there, so committed, creative, well traveled and multilingual.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping with a fundraiser in Portland for a school in a very remote Peruvian village high in the Andes.

I enjoy being part of an organization that not only provides appropriate, sustainable technology (wind, solar and micro-hydro) but also "walks the talk" on community empowerment by partnering with local NGOs and helping to organize community management of these systems! Green Empowerment also trains and connects government officals in many countries on sustainable energy, clean water systems, biogas and cookstove progress for rural communities so that knowledge is shared and best practices promoted. Impressive.

The Great!

I volunteer in the office in several ways and while I'm here, I find out about the projects that are in process, the new businesses that spring up in poor rural villages when there is clean power and water and the trainings that are offered in so many venues throughout the world.

What impresses me about Green Empowerment is their focus and effectiveness.

They are focused on providing two essentials to those in need: clean water and electricity powered by renewable energy.

They are effective because the projects they drive are run through partnerships with
NGOs in the target countries and the local community owns the resulting electricity and water projects.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In each of the countries where Green Empowerment works, there are numerous success stories where their projects have supplied clean water and/or electricity where it hasn't existed before. Having clean water and electricity are easy for most people to take for granted. But imagine doing without either. Having to walk miles to haul clean water to your home or doing without lighting, or devices that run on electricity. Now imagine having access to these basics for the first time. That is Green Empowerment.

I think Green Empowerment will benefit by getting the word out to a broader audience. The organization has a great story to tell and people will be inspired by the message.
