This is our story

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation is a registered non religious and non political, registered nonprofit, working to end poverty and hunger in Africa through investments in Education, Social entrepreneurship and leadership development. We support and foster social entrepreneurs as an indispensable catalyst for development, innovation and progress. The 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.​ 

Small changes with a big difference

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. Our approach is therefore community-centered and originates from the community. Our programs, thought processes and implementation are deeply driving by local community needs and active participation. At The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation, we are inspired each day by the work we do, and feel such a sense of accomplishment with each success story that comes from past or present recipients. Sometimes, the best solutions come from the people who are most affected by the problem - and we want to be the center stage of their success.
