(1) Wildlife and Environment ConservationÂ
Be it protecting the Wildlife like big cats of India covering Lions, Tigers and Leopards to forests, mangroves and environment at large, Team Empower has been involved deeply in this field through ourÂ Chapters like “The Wild India”, “Save our Lions”, “Save our Leopards” etc. (Pls see the respective Chapters for details)
(2) Tribal Upliftment
With Forests and Environments, comes the Tribals who are and were residents there. Marginalized due to lack of infrastructure and literacy they are the most vulnerable class and un noticed thanks to being a minority from a vote bank perspective.Â We have been involved in many tribal upliftment and rehabilitation activities also with the government and forest departments.
(3) Youth DevelopmentÂ
Youth of the nation, are the most important segment to bring in any change and we have been instrumental in various Youth development activities and also in contributing to the Policy Making for Youth by the Ministry of Youth Affairs, Government of India and Government of Maharashtra.
(4) Cultural Restoration and Development
We believe that the backbone of the society is the culture and we try contributing in our small ways to retain, restore and spread the culture or tradition of India in the form or art covering the tribal art and craft and folk dances of diverse regions of the country.
Areas like Social development, Underprivileged upliftment and Human Rights are also certain causes close to our hearts !
