The Empowerment Society International (ESI) was formed as a nonprofit corporation in Arizona on December 12th, 2003. ESI was granted IRS (3)(C) status September 15th, 2005. The purpose of the ESI is to bring sustainable development innovations and knowledge to sub-Saharan Africa. ESI’s motto is to “Build a Sustainable World, One Individual at a Time…” ESI is a member of the Earth Charter.
ESI's mission is to empower individuals by promoting sustainable development in their communities. ESI was founded to empower the children of sub-Saharan Africa affected by war and conflict, and to treat, prevent, and manage aids and other diseases, to combat illiteracy, and defeat poverty. Our motto is "Building a sustainable world, one individual at a time..."
ESI’s vision is to become the premiere consultants in sub-Saharan Africa on matters relating to sustainable development and renewable energy with the goal of working together with the public, private, and corporate sectors to build a sustainable society.
ESI’s philosophy is to “create an enduring society by fostering a system of commerce, production, and design whereby each act is inherently sustainable and restorative.” ESI’s strategy to achieve this mission is to bring sustainable development to sub-Saharan Africa by applying the best practices in sustainable management and technology in order to create jobs, industry, educational and health opportunities and provide the means for alternative forms of energy use. ESI undertakes sustainable development projects that it can use as showcase developments, train members in sustainable principles, and develop a supplier base for sustainable products, services, and technologies as well as teaching conservation: reduce, recycling, reuse, and regulate.
