Why We Exist


Despite phenomenal technological advances in every imaginable domain of scientific exploration, we continue to struggle with the most basic of human challenges: that children are not born into and trapped in poverty, survive and live to their full potential, are able to receive primary education at the minimum… the list goes on.

At Community Empowerment Lαβ, we believe that game-changing solutions to these challenges can only be found through innovations that are just & lasting. However such innovations can only be created when, firstly, communities become active drivers of their own evolution and not merely remain passive recipients of interventions. Secondly, there must be an ecosystem that fosters free & fair meeting & mating of ideas between global and local communities. This is when true innovations will be conceived - those that lie at the confluence of science & local wisdom.

Community Empowerment Lαβ is borne out of this belief.
