Empower-Emerging Markets Foundation's Fundraiser:

Trois Etapes 2013 for EMpower

BENEFITING: Empower-Emerging Markets Foundation

EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2013

THE STORY:

EMpower is participating in the Trois Etapes cycling event, taking place in the French Alps from 26-29 July 2013. The race is the ultimate competitive Pro-Am cycling experience as it’s designed to give riders the chance to experience team cycling under race conditions, with the full support that a pro would have in a Grand Tour. The goal of the event is to raise $1mill for participating charites. There are 14 teams and 10 charities taking part. EMpower has two teams: US and European.

EMpower focuses on empowering young people (ages 10-24) in Emerging Market (EM) countries. By partnering with locally-led organizations, EMpower provides critical resources and support to at-risk young people- those whose lives are affected by poverty and who often face discrimination, violence, child-trafficking and drugs. Despite the strong economic growth in EM countries, many young people are being left behind, lacking access to education, job training and healthcare. To improve opportunities for these young people, EMpower has granted over $12 million through 400 grants since 2000, directly impacting the lives of close to 120,000 young people.

EMpower currently works with grantee partners in 14 countries bringing together local knowledge, youth development expertise and global networking. With 96 active grants in the past year, we have awarded approximately $2,010,000. From agricultural training in rural Argentina, to mobile classrooms for migrant children in China, to fighting gender-based violence in India, EMpower’s work is both strategic and practical, applying resources on the ground where they are needed most.

EMpower's underwriting model enables us to direct 100% of all sponsorships to making a real difference on the ground. With office locations in New York, London and Hong Kong, the community of EMpower supporters is global. We understand the value of investing in young people and typically they have a professional or personal connection to emerging markets. EMpower's supporters are encouraged to be actively engaged in their work through participation in the grantmaking process and by visiting grantee partners to understand the work first-hand.
