Meet Our Founder
Global Empowers was founded by Musonda Joseph Mwansa; a native from Kawambwa, a small village in the Luapula Province, north of Zambia. Joseph’s humble beginnings have been the foundation on which he built his values and standards for himself, and those around him.
Landing in Australia in the winter of 2009, Joseph had struggled to afford a life worth living; working up to three jobs at a time, in order to have enough to cover living expenses and tuition fees. Returning to his home village in Zambia after 6 years of study in Australia, the daily struggles faced by his community persuaded, and inspired, Joseph to embark on a journey of global empowerment, for all communities, in the developing world.
Global Empowers has always been a dream waiting to be put into motion; Joseph’s passion for international welfare and social change is accompanied by a commitment to providing disadvantaged communities and individuals with the necessary skills, resources and opportunities required to lead and live a better and healthier lifestyle, whilst utilising education and knowledge as a means of global empowerment.
Joseph considers Global Empowers as an organisation set alight with hope, similar to a candle; its flames know no weather nor season. Our global family ties serve as the glue that binds us together, driven by loyalty and purpose. We take absolute pride in lighting others’ paths, without fear of extinguishing our flame, for this is the true signifier of growth.
We are an organisation which possesses the curiosity of a young mind, unafraid to challenge the unknown. We pride ourselves on applying and learning from our experiences, we refuse to accept the impossible and we know that persistence overcomes resistance.
Imagine us being a child who dreams; dreams that stretch from the humble villages of Kawambwa, all the way to the concentrated refugee camps of Africa. The child sees a world where struggling children no longer question their values. A world in which their purpose is fulfilled, and their rightful place as a citizen of this world claimed, regardless of their upbringing. A child who sees a world where every child will have access to clean water, be able to reap the benefits of quality education, and develop a positive and respectable self-image.
We are a child who envisions a world in which communities value importance and families who no longer have to struggle to provide for their children. We see a world where no man is controlled by money, where the power of dreams is recognised by governments, children and their parents. A world of opportunity and equality, where everyone knows that they have been created by one God and in His image, regardless of gender, race, weight and religious background. We are all equal and capable of achieving our dreams.
This child envisions a world where mental poverty is non-existent; with our primary focus on providing funding and support for concepts that protect and empower future generations. A world where the lives of innocent civilians are much more precious than the need for developing first-grade military weapons.
We further envision a world that develops and encourages strong-willed, principled and purposeful leaders. Leaders who, through their values, can build and promote unity and passion amongst the people.
Global Empowers sees a world where authenticity and honesty are at the forefront of our work when serving the people. We hope that each individual can become fishermen and fisherwomen of their own destinies.
Finally, we envision a world where we are more than our external circumstances and features. Instead, we choose to look inwards and admire the contents of our hearts, and to envision love as the foundation of all of our business ventures. We aim to live a life that fulfils God’s purpose for mankind.
