We provide community organizations, non-profit institutions, and social
entrepreneurs with the technology, educational materials, and services they need to
implement fiscally and environmentally sustainable projects.
For every project MicoEmpowering.org is also a donor.
MicroEmpowering.org's closed loop approach to grass-roots sustainable projects bridges the gaps in traditional financing and donor-based social entrepreneurship.
Our goals are to:
- Facilitate communication
between donors, practitioners, and entrepreneurs
- Provide fiscal,
technological, and community support for local and international projects
that encourage sustainable development
- Encourage projects
that promote education about the environment
- Provide individuals
with the right tools to work towards a decent
- Empower communities on the
We empower people by listening to their needs at the micro level and working
to structure solutions to benefit their community.
What is our story - why did we start MicroEmpowering.org?
We are a group
of people from different walks of life who have always been concerned about
sustainability, efficiency, and transparency started to question why the
majority of our charitable donations were not having a greater impact on the
issues we cared most about, which is empowering poor communities
to obtain sustainable development at the micro level.
As a result, we identified three major issues pertaining to donors, which are: feasibility; the adaptation to reality on the ground; and the financial transparency during
and after project implementation. However,
since we could not find a not-for-profit organization focusing on transparency
for donors, employing a mixed strategy of loans, in kind donations, and
knowledge management for sustainable development projects at the micro level, we
decided to join forces, get incorporated, and start Micro-Empowering, Inc. We believe, once provided with the necessary
resources and information, most individuals can craft solutions for creating
sustainable communities and improving lives.
