Elpida Kokkota, “a survival kit to educate yourself”



Elpida describes herself as someone who carries a “scar”, but she refuses that this traumatic experience defines her. As she recalls that education was a key for her to survive, and under the advice of Pr. Muhummad Yunus, she founded MeXOXO to educate and connect thousands of underprivileged women all over the world.

In co-production with the L’Oréal Fund for Women, “Revealing” tells the stories of those who, every day, contribute to changing society.
