Case Studies & Impact Learning

For 15 + years, working with local communities to co-create global solutions in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the USA, the ongoing quest for what works, what's broken and opportunities for change is at the foundation of Empowerment WORKS' mission as a think-tank in action.
