Review for Green Empowerment, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.
