external accountability

Empart is a member of Missions Interlink and adheres to the MI Standards Statement.




Excellence in Giving (EIG) is a full-service philanthropic advisory firm designed to increase the joy of the high-capacity donor through a personalized process of discovery, evaluation, participation, and celebration. EIG undertook a comprehensive assessment of Empart’s governance, strategy, finances, impact and communication and technology. This included on-site visits to our ministry in the field.

“Empart has a clear strategy and a history of meeting ministry goals. Founder Jossy Chacko has structured the organization to maintain accountability at the local level without creating a hierarchical institution. (Field) workers receive enough support to survive but not too much to create long-term dependency on a pay cheque.

The sweat equity of men and women in training who work the fields and cook for themselves at TCs demonstrates their commitment to the cause. The same practice of living by faith and working for needed income by (all workers) reveals the character and commitment of Empart’s workforce.

Empart has continued to adjust its organizational structure and invest in technological infrastructure to keep pace with rapid growth in (the field). Empart Australia has been able to transfer decision-making responsibilities to (field) leadership. (Field) leadership has been able to shift the composition of its leaders from South to North (workers). A strong and active (Field) Board with increasing levels of field leadership show progress toward long-term indigenous leadership of a locally owned (community development) movement.”
