There's an old saying, that goes something like, "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for life."

There's an important life lesson in that simple statement - “Give a person the answer, and they only have a temporary solution. Teach them the principles that led you to that answer, and they will be able to create their own solutions in the future.”

The term empowerment refers to measures to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination of someone in order to enable them to represent their interests in a responsible way, acting on their own ability. It is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life. Empowerment enables them to overcome their sense of powerlessness, and to use their resources to achieve their goals and dreams of an elevated standard of living.
