Young people’s stories leave a lasting impression on EMpower supporters during trip to India

Posted 14 February 2020 in EMpower News, Grantee Partner News   |   Share

{image:url:description} In January, a group of EMpower supporters, accompanied by Board Director, Maddy Foo, made a trip to India. The purpose of this visit was to provide a deeper understanding of EMpower’s work with young people in the region, specifically in Delhi. The group met with three grantee partners: Azad Foundation, The YP Foundation and CREA over two days. Through these interactions, the Donors had an opportunity to talk with grantee partner teams at length, take a closer look at their programs, and meet young people who spoke to the impact of the programs through personal stories of change. The trip allowed the EMpower team in India to foreground the impactful work being done by our partners in the region. It was also an opportunity to delve deeper into EMpower’s gender lens focus in its work with young people in India.
