WE HAVE DECLARED WAR ON HUNGER & POVERTY
We have formally declared war on hunger and poverty. Hunger and Poverty are officially, our number one enemies. Our work focuses primarily on promoting and supporting the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goals 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16. At The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation, we support practical efforts to end poverty and hunger, protect our planet and ensure prosperity for all.
WE EMPOWER RURAL WOMEN AND YOUTH THROUGH AGRICULTURE Women are the backbone of the development of rural and national economies. They comprise 43% of the world's agricultural labor force, which rises to 70% in some countries. In Africa, 80% of the agricultural production comes from small farmers, who are mostly rural women. Women comprise the largest percentage of the workforce in the agricultural sector - 80% of food producers, 10% of those who process basic foodstuffs.
WE SUPPORT SOCIAL ENTERPRISES We support and foster social entrepreneurs as an indispensable catalyst for development, innovation and progress. The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation 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.
WE SUPPORT EDUCATION AND YOUTH LEADERSHIP
Our Entrepreneurship University focuses on the development of skills that enable the realization of opportunity. The program seeks to bridge the gap between entrepreneurial education and innovative learning. By complementing traditional learning through workshops, case studies and interaction with key business people on top of the participants own ideas, the Entrepreneurship University provides participants with the knowledge, skills and motivation to encourage entrepreneurial success in a variety of settings. We focus on three key areas of Thought Leadership, Experiential Learning and Networking. Our Entrepreneurship University engages young entrepreneurs and offers them practical tools, lessons and resources they need to launch, to lead and become successful in business.Our Entrepreneurship University engages young entrepreneurs and offers them practical tools, lessons and resources they need to launch, to lead and become successful in business.
