emBOLDen Alliances

emBOLDen Alliances is on a mission to improve the lives of vulnerable communities through collaborative partnerships that embolden the quality and impact of service.

From Our Team's 65+ years of hands-on experience with vulnerable and crisis-affected communities, we understand to our core that communities and community-based organizations are the first, last, and always for themselves. Fundamentally, we care most about maximizing resources (human, capital, physical, etc.) and measuring, proving, and demonstrating durable impact. We are driving foundational transformation in aid and in response to crises. 

We have been witnessing our success with >30 partners in 15 countries, ranging from a student group in the US to a locally-based organization serving forgotten HIV-affected communities in Uganda, leading a robust local response to the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, and helping a multimillion dollar hospital group revamp its short-term medical missions to better align with community vision. We have won four global innovation awards to date, including being among the Finalists for the Top 100 Innovators at the World Humanitarian Summit.
