Jonathan Bayliss at Ikamva Youth, South Africa

I’m delighted to be a supporter since the inception of EMpower in the UK. Our programme staff find extraordinary community-based organisations that are transforming the lives of vulnerable young people. The grantmaking process provides the due diligence to select the very best grantee partners so that our funding and technical assistance can have as much impact as possible. As a Director, I’m also delighted to support EMpower’s governance and sustainability, so that we can continue to help our grantee partners to grow for decades to come.
