Our Mission & Vision


Our Mission

Sustainable Health Empowerment (SHE) harnesses the power of education, local resources, and cross-cultural collaboration to foster equitable healthcare in underserved communities around the world.


Our Vision

-Promote improved quality of life in communities through select health services, education, and best practices in preventive healthcare.

-Support sustainability through respectful, ongoing collaborative relationships between the U.S participants and the communities we serve.

-Nurture a belief in the power of service to create and sustain positive change personally, professionally, and globally.


Those We Serve

SHE’s mission is to address the needs of underserved populations throughout the world. Our initial efforts have been centered in Cambodia (Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, Kampong Cham, Sihanoukville, and Battambang, and Phnom Penh), with specific locations ranging from orphanages to factories, hotels, and temples. Future plans include Greece and Laos.

Underserved refers to populations which are disadvantaged because of ability to pay, ability to access care, ability to access comprehensive healthcare, or other disparities for reasons of race, religion, language group or social status.
