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.

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.

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.
