EndoSurvivors International Foundation (ESIF)

EndoSurvivors International Foundation (ESIF) is a registered non-profit organization in Nigeria; committed to reducing period poverty, raising awareness about endometriosis, promoting disease recognition, and supporting girls and women living with the condition in Nigeria. 

Since inception, we have successfully educated over 12,000 adolescents and youth about the symptoms of endometriosis, in an effort to encourage a care-seeking behaviour especially among adolescent girls at risk.
