Em[POWER] Project Bangladesh 2012 Summary

Dear Friends, Donors, Advisors, Members, Interns and Consultants,

On behalf of em[POWER] Energy Group family, I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your continued support. Every donation whether it is through volunteer services or monetary helps ensures that we can continue helping our community locally and internationally.

I know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this time and money, but you believe in our cause, so you chose to invest it in our project. Because of this investment, I want you to feel like part of our team. We're in this together. I want our success to be your success.

Our projects are across the globe and until one project site is fully operational, we will be sending you regular reports about our work and asking for donations in both voluntary service and monetary form. You'll know what your donation has helped fund, what accomplishments we have achieved and what our current needs are.

In 2012, we have transformed our overall model for the organization. Domestic model went from cross-functional team to cross-functional NGOs under em[POWER] umbrella for each of our project sites. Project sites transformed from in-country em[POWER] organization to partnership-dependant implementation model. Our goal is merge CSR and donations for energy development through on-site partner in order to fund non-energy segments of different countries project sites. We are continually adding subsidiaries in the US while development in both energy and non-energy segments.

We have successfully ran the following:

-  Researcher orientation sessions within the Landfill

- Tube well system to give access to water to the community that does not have it

- Health Management team helped have a space for a doctor with patient area  and medical equipments for one doctor 

I hope you find this partnership valuable and worthwhile. I know the economy is tough, so thank you for investing your time and hard-earned money on our cause. Please consider telling your friends and family about our project - share the link on your blogs or social networks or just bring us up in conversation. You know your friends and family best so use your own words - tell them why you chose our project and what it means to you.

As we expand, we seek and need more help! We need more specialists, advisors, members, organizations, donors to continue to expand and implement in our project sites.

Thank you again for all you have done to help this cause.

With gratitude,

Nasir Uddin

VP, em[POWER] Energy Group
