The Red Elephant Foundation is an initiative built on the foundations of story-telling, civilian peacebuilding and activism for women and girls.

The initiative is titled "Red Elephant" to stand out as a vehicle that projects stories that must never be forgotten: stories that show you such courage that you should never forget, and stories that show the world such profound lessons that the world should never forget.

In doing so, the initiative aims at creating awareness and opening up channels of communication towards creating societies of tolerance, peacebuilding and equality.

Mission

The mission of the Red Elephant Foundation is:

To be the voice of women and girls all over the world by telling their stories
To be a conduit for awareness of challenges faced by women and girls in all social contexts.
To be a change-making organisation that serves to transform mindsets towards women and girls
To encourage girls and women to be change-makers
To encourage schools and educational institutions to include a gender sensitivity component by encouraging men and women to celebrate their diversities by beginning to respect them at first.
To encourage governments and policy-makers to draft and implement law and policy through a gender-mainstreamed lens to serve men and women in keeping with the needs specific to their gender
To inspire peace through dialogue, awareness and inspiration.
