The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation

Unverified non-profit organisation

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation is a registered non religious and non political grassroots nonprofit, working to end poverty and hunger in Africa through investments in education, social entrepreneurship and leadership development.

The Foundation supports and fosters social entrepreneurs as an indispensable catalyst for development, innovation and progress. It identifies, celebrates social entrepreneurs and connects them to policy makers, innovators and change agents and provides them with the tools and resources they need to solve pressing social problems.​

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation works in partnership with Social Entrepreneurs, the academic community and policy makers, to strategize, organize and deliver tools and services to promote the entrepreneurial culture that cultivates, inspires and facilitates sustainable peace and development. The approach is therefore community-centered and originates from the community.

The programs, thought processes and implementation are deeply driving by local community needs and active participation. Sometimes, the best solutions come from the people who are most affected by the problem – and the foundation wants to be the center stage of their success.

The foundation also supports positive social change through viable, sustainable programs that strengthen local people and communities.
