Welcome to Empower Philippines!
We raise funds.
We ask for books.
We seek for voluntary services.
We listen to personal stories of the poor and those with special needs and in turn share them to the community to raise awareness about their reality.
Utilizing all these, we identify those most in need and help them get back on their feet so that they can independently build their dreams for themselves and for their families.

Be a contributor to the world around you, no matter how small or big the deed maybe as long as it’s from the heart, it can and it will empower and emanate the goodness that you have bestowed. What you sow will always be what you reap.

Personally, to empower someone is to believe in his/her capability as a person when society or circumstances strip him/her of it….and when that self esteem back in him… then we equip them so they can move on and have their own chance to own the world again…

I feel empowered when people around me trust that I am someone they can depend and rely on. That they believe that I have the capability to make a difference, that with courage, perseverance and hard work that tasks or dreams that seem impossible are attainable. I suppose if pay this forward to other people, they will feel empowered as well.

Empowering someone means acknowledging one’s potentials and capabilities. It also means giving the person your full trust in order to declare him or her confident and composed in everything that he or she does. In capsule, it means providing one a set of wings and teaching him/her to use these wings to soar all possibilities!

As a photographer, each time I take pictures on my camera for Empower Philippines and from what my eyes can see through my lens, I am able to express to others how marvelous it is to help out without expecting anything in return, especially when helping the poorest of the poor. Interestingly, I feel such intense empowerment in me whenever I empower others.
