In the video above, Sir Michael Jones - recently knighted - rugby great, community worker, firm family man and all round NZ hero and good guy talks about EMPOWER ASIA
Having spent over 20 years living in Asia and working for one of the world’s largest international development organizations in developing countries, we have seen hundreds of organizations at work in the field. It is clear that some are making a huge impact in the communities they are working in, and others less so. One of the reasons we financially support Empower Asia is that we believe in the basic development paradigm that underpins their work: individuals are valuable, have potential, and can only be changed when one is prepared to invest in them long term and in a holistic way. Empower Asia does this, and is making a difference in many lives.
We have confidence in the leadership team at Empower Asia and have confidence in the work they do and the impact they are making. Greg Foster – Past Area Vice President for Africa & Middle East
