The Empowered 100 is Global Brigades’ commitment to empower 100 rural communities in Ghana, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama 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 our lifetime.
