Posted 01 December 2016 in EMpower News   |   Share


On 29 November EMpower was excited to attend the Citi e for education closing event in London at the National Portrait Gallery. Neha Broota, Development and Engagement Manager, and Jeremy Llewelyn, Board Co-Chair in UK, joined other beneficiary charities to celebrate the campaign’s incredible total raised: $4 million! This total will be split equally between the 7 organizations.

EMpower is hugely grateful to be chosen as a beneficiary of the campaign for a 4th year, in which Citi donated $1 for every $1million of FX transacted electronically between 12 September to 18 November.

Support from Citi e for education has been, and continues to be, a game-changer in boosting EMpower’s work to educate at-risk youth in emerging market countries.

Thank you Citi, and special thanks to our supportive Board Directors, Underwriters and donors from Citi especially Paco Ybarra, James Bindler, Graham Pilnik, Karol Tokarczyk and Giles Page, who were also at the event.
