In 2016, ELEMIS donated a total of £30,000 in support of our work, which included funding a class of 25 women in Afghanistan through our year-long programme. For one member of the 2016 class sponsored by ELEMIS, the dream of setting up her own business was one step closer upon graduating. She said, “I am so grateful for the support, for helping me find a way to stand taller and become stronger.”
In 2017, ELEMIS has continued to support Women for Women International with a donation of £30,000 and through sponsoring 12 more women on the Women for Women International year-long training program. ELEMIS’ ongoing support will enable us to reach our target of enrolling 15,000 more women onto our programme this year, so they can learn about their human rights and gain the skills necessary to earn an income and provide for their families.
International Women's Day
ELEMIS marked International Women’s Day 2016 with the launch of the limited edition #SheInspiresMe Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich. Our joint #SheInspiresMe social sharing campaign attracted support from an incredible 5,000 participants who all paid tribute to the woman who most inspires them on social media.
