Kofi Annan Foundation

Road to Peace

Ten years ago, our Chair Kofi Annan established the Kofi Annan Foundation to apply his expertise and experience for the benefit of peace. From our earliest days brokering peace in Kenya to supporting democracy and elections with integrity in Nigeria, to changing drug policies in West Africa and combatting hunger, to helping post-conflict societies back onto the road to peace and empowering young leaders, our small team has not had much respite.

We have spent the past 10 years working on breaking down obstacles to peace, one barrier at a time. We have sought to establish coalitions for change, united in their quest for peace, by mobilising the voices of leaders, citizens, corporations and all those who can make a difference – and that includes you!


The road to peace is still long and filled with obstacles, and we need all the help we can get to break down those barriers. That is why we have decided to reach out to all those who support us in our quest.

You can now give directly to the Foundation, or organise your own fundraiser for peace. Donate your birthday, wedding, sport or other event to contribute to peacebuilding around the world – every little bit helps.

We are excited to share that friends of the Foundation, such as Richard Branson, have started donating their birthdays to us on Facebook! Check out his campaign here, and don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more.
