THE STORY:

For a goal of $5000, you can help towards the objective of providing two more micro hydro systems to villages in Afghanistan. These systems would provide electricity to the villages during the difficult winter that lies ahead. Each winter, many children die due to freezing weather conditions.  Additionally, these micro hydro systems would catalyze development throughout the province and contribute to improved quality of life and opportunities for families in the area.  

This program has been implemented successfully since 2014 for relatively small amounts of funding, which has been directly of "people to people" assistance. The people in the villages are responsible for providing the land for the microhydro system to be placed, for installing the system and keeping it running. The systems provided thus far have been working in other villages as the people protect them as a community asset.

Thus, this is not about giving a donation, it is about partnering with people to improve thier lives and giving them the tools to succeed.

Aid and development projects are most effective when the basic needs of the people are met first. Consistent access to clean water, viable and sustainable sources of electricity, and education infrastructure comprise the foundation of successful development programs. 

The 'EmPower A Village' program will provides micro hydro systems to villages in order to facilitate an environment conducive to advancing basic economic and educational opportunities. The electricity created by the micro hydro systems would provide light for each village. In creating electricity and light, the micro hydro systems would set the conditions for reading and learning unbounded by the restrictions of darkness. 

Please help empower women and children in these villages by providing simple micro hydro systems to two villages before snow falls this winter. Your donation will make a world of difference for something simple you may take for granted each day, but which will help change the lives of families in parts of the world that have been affected by conflict.
