Do you know how Empower Me began?
Meet Areef Abraham – the miracle worker behind Empower Me. Originally born born in Tanzania, Areef has always been interested in building communities and developing technical skills. As a mechanical engineer, Areef has dedicated his 25 year career to energy efficiency.
But he wanted to do more. In 2009, he founded Community Power, a sister company to Empower Me. Areef worked collaboratively with Indigenous communities while bringing his own expertise on energy efficiency. However, his story did not end with Community Power; he also started Empower Me, a program that is uniquely designed to deliver free energy saving workshops in newcomer communities and in language.
This is the vision that drives Empower Me.
As a result of his hard work, committed dedication, and amazing achievements, Areef has been nominated for RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award! To learn more about this prestigious award, please click HERE, and watch the video below to find out about what inspires Areef.
