The month of March has come to an end and there were many celebrations held by the groups and projects supported by the ELAS Fund in partnership with AVON, the UN Gender Equality Fund, the OAK Foundation, the Sigrid Rausing Trust, the Global Fund for Women and the Ford Foundation.


March was a show of creativity, talent, energy and activism. 
Long live women!
