Our core. What Are We All About?
Emprofit operates with the brains of a business and the heart of a humanitarian. Our social business focuses on people and recycles profits to create the most amount of good. Emprofit believes that every person, particularly those in urban poor areas, has great potential to uplift himself to live a life of dignity and self-reliance. Our goal is to form profitable subsidies worldwide, with all profits to be reinvested into employees and local communities.
“The poor themselves can create a poverty-free world. Each person has tremendous potential. She or he alone can influence the lives of others within the communities, nations, within and beyond her or his own time.” -Muhammad Yunus
Who are we. What Drives Us?
After spending time in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and other resource-poor settings, we continue to see the lack of opportunity and inequalities while being inspired by so many that are eager to work and help. Our driving force is putting an end to the daily struggle for survival faced by people in unfortunate circumstances. We are unable to forget the inequities that we see and feel compelled to create sustained change. The founders and leaders of Emprofit come from a variety of backgrounds with the common resolve to act.
“Each time someone stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.” -Robert F. Kennedy
