WHO WE ARE

Mexoxo is a non-profit organization that supports women to achieve their full potential. Believing that education is the tool for growth and change, Mexoxo encourages, enables and facilitates women’s active involvement in business, employment, learning, and community.

 

OUR HISTORY

The Mexoxo journey started in 2013 in Tijuana Mexico, when Elpida Kokkota, Founder & CEO, made the brave decision to do what she loved and leave behind the Bostonian lifestyle.

 

The action was fired up by Professor Nobel Laureate M. Yunus, who mentored her vision to help women to achieve socio-economic growth. Two women in Mexico became Mexoxo's first beneficiaries. Commencing Mexoxo's impact they open the road to 500 more women to become entrepreneurs.

 

Two years later, Elpida officially pledged a commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative to empower and educate 5,000 women by 2020. The mission was fulfilled in 16 countries at the end of 2019.

 

Mexoxo was nominated by the National Greek Delegation to represent Greece, for the first time in its history, for the "UNESCO Prize for Women's and Girls Education 2020". During its 8 years of operation Mexoxo has achieved to support 7000+ women directly and 28,000+ women indirectly.

WHAT WE DO

Our vision to unleash every woman’s potential can only be achieved by addressing the following crucial needs that constitute key barriers for their socio-economic growth and their emergence from vulnerable situations such as:

 Lack of Education 

 Unemployment 

 Financial Instability 

Lack of educational and employment opportunities due to the geographical boundaries and human characteristics 

 Lack of a gender-specific support network in the professional sphere 

Mexoxo team together with our Academia, Governmental, Corporate, and local NGO partners bring collective change to:

Unleash every woman’s potential anywhere at any time.

Together we inspire, aspire, enrich women's capacity, education and network, to lead their lives with freedom, independence, economic stability and thus, become capable to neutralize any type of discrimination. Empowering women is a clear path to influence real change and equal long-term wealth on a global scale.
