Our operations in Australia are volunteer-run and our board has a rich range of skills and experience in international development, human rights, governance, social enterprise and business. Our sister organisation, “Empower Malawi” was established in 2012. This is in line with our commitment to ensure that our projects are championed by a localboard and members of local staff that have extensive experience and a strong understanding of the local language, culture and context. At present, our operations in Sri Lanka are managed through local partner organisations. Simmilar to our approach in Malawi, our hope is to establish a local sister organsiation in the time to come.
