The Empowered 100 is Global Brigades’ commitment to empower 100 rural Central American communities that represent about 65,000 persons to permanently rise out of global poverty through 3 core components: healthcare, WASH, and economic development. These 3 components correspond to 6 goals for an Empowered Community and align with United Nations Sustainable Development goals. Our ultimate goal is to create a blueprint to end rural poverty in Latin America in our lifetime.
