A Message From The Secretary General of Elena NGO ❤️
Dear partners in development work. According to a United Nations Statistics:
Women perform 67% of the World’s working hours
Women earn 10% of the World’s income
Women are 2/3 of the World’s illiterates
Women own less than 1% of the World’s property
The statistics are alarmists and reduces the women to sub-human beings. What can we do to reverse this situation? Should men reverse it for women? Not all. Women need to do something for themselves before it is too late, and that is by SELF EMPOWERMENT.

ELENA started as an informal initiative on the 15th of September 1991 to design and make dresses, train young girls who have not been opportune to have a place in post-primary educational institution, for one reason or the other. The initiative was later transformed to an NGO
In the year 2000, in line with Law No 90/053 of 19th December 1990. The initiative was registered as a non-governmental organization (NGO).
This brought ELENA into legal existence.
