Facilitate sustainable solutions to today’s challenges in development by employing cutting-edge, contextually relevant tools and methods to impact durable change and impact.



At Sustainable Human Empowerment (SHE) Associates, we believe the fundamental component to sustainable development is human empowerment. Empowerment means people possess the confidence, motivation, skills, and systems to better their lives. It means people owning and leading change in their communities and countries.


Our approaches aim to develop and implement solutions which positively impact communities, societies and humanity as a whole. Whether it is working directly with governments, organizations, civil-society or not-for-profit organizations, our goal is to strategically advance development through projects, policies, tools, institutional structures and environments which enable progress.​


Gender equality, durable peace, inclusive governance and the effective realization of the rule of law are foundational elements for prosperous societies. However, lasting change cannot be achieved instantly. At SHE Associates we believe empowerment is truly a process. One which is unique to every situation, and so with every initiative we commit to provide expertise focusing on laying the right foundation for change – one building block at a time.
