Our Vision 

h2 Empower aspires to empower the lives we touch through supporting access to high quality education for all, helping communities develop sustainable improvement in quality of life and increasing connectivity to the global community so that all individuals can reach their highest potential for their families and our greater society.

Our Methodology

h² Empower is currently working in Ethiopia and Burundi to build sustainable systems so that communities will have increased  knowledge, skills, income, heath and additional resources for today and tomorrow. Our model is to support one community on many levels and to develop sustainable structures rather than give funds, build something and then move on. It takes time and the coordinated efforts of many people to make long-term lasting change. We intend to help empower the people, building community efforts to improve their standard of living for themselves and their children’s future.
