MicroEmpowerED, an affiliate of EduCARE India, is focused on supporting and empowering marginalized individuals and communities through various grassroots projects and initiatives that address a broad range of health, economic, education, environmental and housing issues. Our goal stretches much further than poverty eradication. Through life skills and literacy education, self help groups and environmentally conscious micro finance opportunities, we are striving to enhance people's capacity to live an enriched, engaged and sustainable life that makes them micro-empowered.
