Project: Empower

» D’André Phillips

Head of IT & Online Prescence

D’André joined Project: Empower in December 2018. He is the manager of the IT Division. D’André attained 9 A’s – C’s in GCSE in 2013, went on to study BTEC ICT Level 3 at City of Westminster College, picking up a D*D*D grade (16 Distinctions and 2 Passes), then went on to successfully pass a City & Guilds Apprenticeship in Software Development.

He currently works full time as a Junior Web Developer in Central London, while proactively working in event-based jobs, mainly at Wembley Stadium.

He firmly believes access to legal education for vulnerable communities is a wider route out of poverty.

D’André is in charge of Empower’s online presence, including developing and maintaining Empower’s website. With over two years worth of commercial experience in Web Development, D’André brings important IT knowledge to the project, making sure we are always ahead of the technological curve.

“Black Excellence” is something D’André heavily favours, he believes that the achievements made by people of colour should be strongly celebrated, which is one of the reasons why he joined Project: Empower. By supporting a unique charity project that focuses on making sure people of Ethnic minorities get the legal support they need, he’d be part of a stereotype-breaking group that gets recognised for all the right reasons – and giving something for all the newspapers to talk about.

Site Under Construction

Welcome to Project: Empower.

Our IT person is still busy tinkering about with code, making sure the site is up to scratch.

Although Project: Empower already up and running, our website isn't quite finished yet.

But when it is, expect a revolutionary new chapter to our small, but growing charity project.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
