We believe in village solutions for global change.

Green Empowerment works with rural communities and partners around the world to improve access to affordable and renewable energy, safe drinking water, sanitation systems, fuel efficient cook stoves and more. With our support, projects are designed, constructed and maintained by the communities that benefit from them to ensure long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Our projects help individuals and families pave their own pathway to prosperity.

By increasing access to water and renewable energy through partnership, we are advancing the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations - #6 Clean Water and Sanitation, #7 Affordable and Clean Energy and #17 Partnerships for the Goals. Our projects also improve health outcomes, build climate change resilience, empower and educate women, create opportunities for income generation and more.

Since 1997, Green Empowerment has empowered over 408,800 people around the world.
