Empower is a fully registered NPC that focusses on overcoming generational poverty through the power of strong connections and community. We enable this through providing three key functions, for entrepreneurs, housing and sustainable income projects.

The Run It Back Campaign

Empower is a NPC that has a vision to overcome generational poverty in local communities. One of our core values is to empower entrepreneurs, therefore, something close to our hearts is local business. We realise the value and influence that business has on the community that surrounds it.

In George, South Africa, we have an electricity shortage, that we call load shedding. This means that our national government can decide on when George has electricity or not. At the height of load shedding, George was without power for 8 hours in a day. This has a massive effect on businesses.

Therefore, we as Empower decided to act and give back to our local businesses. We are raising funds during the month of December, to purchase at least 8 generators, to give to local businesses. Why? Because we believe in local business, and we want them to continue to stay open and make a profit in these challenging times. We want to thank the local businesses in our community, for adding value to our society! We will continue to cheer you on.

You can be involved! How? By participating in one or all three of the following.

  1. Commit to running 5km's every day for 8 Days (1 - 8 December 2022).
  2. Post about your run on your personal social media account and tag Empower. @Empowertp.org_
  3. Invest/donate R 5000/US$500 to the 2nd Annual Run It Back Campaign.

Your partnership with Empower and action to overcoming generational poverty is valued. Thank you! Together we are the change. Looking forward to seeing you running

"Empowerment: feeling confident in your ability, and encouraged in your circumstances, such that you feel motivated and at liberty to fully devote your talents to a purpose."
