“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”
– DR. Martin Luther King
Powersis is a non-profit community organisation set-up by a group of professional women to bring about positive changes, which affects not only humanity but also the global environment. We run workshops and activities in order to bring about awareness of the many challenges which women, men and their families face, as well as the many issues affecting the natural environment. We place importance on bringing about environmental issues to public knowledge, in order to advocate changes in policy.
Some of the things, which we pay particular concern and interest with, are: poverty, climate change, peace and security, education, sustainable development, health and wellbeing, gender equality, food production, FGM (female genital mutilation), Fair trade and this list is not exhaustive.
We further pride ourselves on providing forums for individuals and groups to express their views, hence, creating a dialogue between all involved to find areas of agreement and to solve problems together.
The work that we do both nationally and internationally touches the lives of many people. Most of the work is done locally within the UK, with our presence allowing for those most in need to receive assistance quickly.
