About Us
Endonamoo transformation global initiative (ETGIN)
is an upcoming, non-governmental organization
established and registered with CAC in 2015.
“Endonamoo” is a Greek word meaning “to
empower”, which refers to increasing the spiritual,
political, social, educational, gender and economic
strength of individuals and communities. The
mission of this indigenous non-profit organization is
empowering the disadvantaged individuals and
groups in the society. We envision a world where
people are empowered to make an informed
decision which affect their lives positively, and are
emancipated from spiritual, social, economic,
physical and psychological restrictions thereby
improving their quality of life in the society.

Our Motivation
According to International Labor Organization, youth
make up 17% of the world's population. There are
1.2 billion youth in the world aged between 15 and
24. 87% of youth live in developing countries. A total
of 357.7 million youth were not in education,
employment, or training (NEET) in 2010, and the
number is increasing. Also in 2010, 536 million of
employed youth in developing countries are
underemployed compared with 1.5million in 27 EU

countries. In developing countries, six out of ten
workers in the 15-29 age groups lacked a stable
employment contract, six out of ten had below
average wages and eight out of ten were in
informal employment in 2012.
It is a well-known fact that seventy-five percent of
the world's poorest countries and countries with
highest proportion of residents living in extreme
poverty are located in subs agrarian Africa (Gallup
World, 2013). The Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO) of the United Nations
estimated that 239 million people (around 30
percent of the population) in sub-Saharan Africa
were hungry in 2010. This is the highest
percentage of any region in the world. In addition,
the U.N. Millennium Project reported that over 40
percent of all Africans are unable to regularly
obtain sufficient food. Thirty seven percent of 738
million people who lack access to clean water
globally, are living in sub-Saharan Africa, and
coupled with Poverty it results in over 500 million
people suffering from waterborne diseases.
Due to continuing violence, conflict and
widespread human rights abuses, about 38 % (11
million) of the world's refugees exist in Africa
(United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
reports).
More than one million people, mostly children
under the age of five, die every year from malaria.
Malarial deaths in Africa alone account for 90
percent of all malaria deaths worldwide. Eighty
percent of these victims are African children. The
U.N. Millennium Project has calculated that a child
in Africa dies from malaria every 30 seconds, or
about 3,000 each day
Fewer than 20 percent of African women have

access to education. Uneducated African women
are twice as likely to contract AIDS and 50 percent
less likely to immunize their children. Women in
sub-Saharan Africa are over 230 times more likely
to die during childbirth or pregnancy than women
in North America. Approximately one in 16 women
living in sub-Saharan African will die during
childbirth or pregnancy.
According to a 2013 global review of available
data, 35 per cent of women worldwide have
experienced either physical and/or sexual
intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual
violence. More often than not, cases of violence
against women go unreported.
Worldwide, more than 700 million women alive
today were married as children (below 18 years of
age). More than one in three or some 250
million—were married before 15. Child brides are
often unable to effectively negotiate safer sex,
leaving themselves vulnerable to sexually
transmitted infections, including HIV, along with
early pregnancy. The fact that girls are not
physically mature enough to give birth, places
both mothers and their babies at risk. Poor girls
are also 2.5 times more likely to marry in childhood
than their wealthy counterparts.
Harmful practice of female genital mutilation
(FGM) involving more than 133 million girls and
women is common in the 29 countries in Africa.
Beyond extreme physical and psychological pain,
girls who undergo FGM are at risk of prolonged
bleeding, infection (including HIV), infertility,
complications during pregnancy and death.

All these alarming statistical facts compel
ETGIN to call for combining efforts to alleviate
these problems and empower the youths, poor,
widows, orphans, the vulnerable women and
children in the developing world thereby
ensuring better quality of life.
We empower the Youth by providing guidance
and counseling services, Skill acquisition and
vocational training program. Leadership and
entrepreneurs' capacity development, support
and Training them to practice safe sexual
health.
We also empower the health of individuals and
groups in the community through community
health promotion and education; providing free
medical and dental consultation and services
to rural communities, improving reproductive
and family health status of the People group in
the community.
We empower women and vulnerable children
by ensuring the right of all women and children
to live in violence-free families and
communities, to be treated with respect and
dignity, to make their own decisions and impact
their own lives, and to provide assistance and
support to vulnerable children and women and
protection to those prone to abuse.
