Who We Are
ELGAM Foundation was registered as a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) on February 04, 2009 as a subsidiary and in partnership with LITE GJØR MYE (LGM) a Norwegian NGO who believes that the smallest amounts collected from friends, associates, other individuals and companies can help alleviate the suffering of women in rural areas in Ghana by helping them engage in small, but sustainable finance generating ventures which will enable the rural women educate their children and help them find life more worth living.
What we do
ELGAM and Lite gjør mye investigate and support finance generating ventures peculiar to the various localities and train the rural women to engage in the ventures of their choice. While in the locality, other problems discovered by ELGAM & Partners are addressed accordingly.
Partners from Norway and some of their donor-associates visit Ghana every November on vacation for two reasons: to check and verify proposed projects and inspect on-going and completed projects and be present at the commissioning, so they can interact with the local people who are beneficiaries of the organization.
