Ellamo Beneficiaries

The Ellamo Foundation supports initiatives that aim to make life more beautiful.


Reinforcing our Commitment

Financial Adoption of Orphans in India

Childrenshome is a Dutch Christian ANBI Foundation that saves children's lives in India and then offers them proper education, among other Math, English, Ethics, IT, and more. CEO Manely Ellamo adopted financially for three years (2016-2018), an orphan girl (see picture). She is now 17 years old and no longer at 'Childrenshome'; she parted to support her family. The goal is eventually to offer support to aid more children and maximize the efforts from this caring organization lead by the Dutch couple

Jan Mureau en Lia Mureau Rullens. In 2020 a delegation of the Ellamo board will meet with them and set goals for a decent financial support plan for the coming five years.

Uniting People through Entertainment

'ShortCutzAmsterdam.' It is unprecedented what this ANBI organization has created and achieved in just six years. The organization lead by the couple Alexa and João Carlos Rodrigues has a high cultural and unifying value in Amsterdam as well nationally. Ellamo supports ShortCutzAmsterdam for five years, with both financial and non-financial means. We gave monetary aid in 2018 and 2019. In 2020 a delegate of the Ellamo Foundation will meet with them and set goals for a decent financial support plan for the coming five years.

Operation Underground Railroad (OUR)

The past six years of existence, O.U.R. has rescued 3,000 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 2,000 traffickers around the world. The partners they are empowering have collectively helped recover the lives of more than 10,000 survivors who were enslaved, exploited, or at risk.
We at the Ellamo Foundation want to help increase this number till this work becomes obsolete.
The C.E.O. of the Ellamo Foundation connected with O.U.R. to create a joint venture between the two public benefit organizations.

Unsilenced Voices (UV)

Our main goals involve the protection and empowerment of people. Domestic Violence is a serious issue we need to address as a society. Michelle Jewsbury, the founder of UV, is a survivor of Domestic Violence.  She currently operates in Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Nepal. UV works with their partners to implement shelters, sensitization programs, legal assistance, vocational training, medical and counseling to victims of domestic abuse, and sexual gender-based violence. UV is developing essential partners in the USA to serve the greater Los Angeles area in 2020.

Ellamo and OV partnered together through a fiscal sponsorship in the USA to raise funds and to empower

our goals.

Ellamo supports with all means the following film-related projects with high humanitarian value and positive impact potential.

Wim Hof 'The Ice Man' Film

" More Than a Film " 

Wim Hof 'The Ice Man Film' already has been branded worldwide as

'More Than A Film.'

October 2010, we initiated this project on request by Wim Hof when he and Manely met and became instant friends. The film director and producer saw the humanitarian potential and an excellent science-based case potential. Therefore, Manely decided to sign a contract with Wim and start from scratch involving science. By now, there are official and published scientific papers and a first draft screenplay.

In 2016 a WHF Gala was held in Amsterdam, which became acclaimed and famous and a format to do again.

We expect to deliver the final draft of the screenplay in September 2020.

The financial phase is now in place.

A joint venture with Hollywood (USA) parties is in the making.
