We believe empowerment is the first step towards transformation and essential to breaking the cycle of extreme poverty.
Lack of access to opportunity and limited prospects for the future, particularly for youth, women and other marginalized groups negatively impacts impoverished communities around the world. We witness first-hand how the lack of training and employment opportunities, perpetuate poverty, crime, child abandonment, exploitation and dependency. HRI is working to change this reality by empowering individuals to take control of their own futures.
Our empowerment focused programs are results-oriented and work to improve knowledge, develop skills and create viable income generation options for women and young adults through a “pay-it-forward”approach that helps the next generation of program participants. Each person has the opportunity to help themselves, their family and their community move towards a more economically stable, socially inclusive, and responsible future.
I am thrilled to be in partnership with Rachel Zelon and HRI. I’ve seen the HRI operation in person – it’s making a huge impact on the community.
