Meet Julie a professional woman who felt she’d hit rock bottom after a series of misfortune. That is until completing the Empower- Be The Change courses! A very moving story: 

We firmly believe by empowering EVERYONE we can collectively create a world in which:

  • Good mental health and positive work life balance is standard. 
  • Poverty of opportunity is eradicated
  • Employment is high

Ultimately leading to cohesive and empowered individuals, communities and workforces!
