MicroEmpowerED is an affiliate initiative of EduCARE India. It was set up with an initial focus on healthy living and sustainable livelihoods for marginalized migrant communities and vulnerable poor in rural areas through life skills education, financial literacy, and environment conscious micro-entrepreneurship and micro-finance.
Our purpose is to foster and allow individuals, social groups, and communities to reclaim their own destiny and future; on equitable terms, through empowerment particularly rural poor and disadvantaged marginalised populations.
Our aim is to work to support the empowerment of individuals and communities in need, through holistic projects that address a broad range of health, economic, education, environmental and housing issues. Our approach is much beyond a simple aspect of poverty eradication, but to also enhance people's capacity to live an enriched, engaged and sustainable life that makes them micro-empowered.
We envisage an integrated strategy at for alleviating poverty through promoting consciousness towards responsible slow lifestyles and sustained income generating activities that are friendly to others and the environment.
