Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August 2018, after a short illness.
Kofi Annan was a global statesman and a deeply committed internationalist who fought throughout his life for a fairer and more peaceful world. During his distinguished career including leadership of the United Nations and as Founder and Chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation, he was an ardent champion of peace, committed to, sustainable development, human rights and the rule of law. The Kofi Annan Foundation remains determined to advance Kofi Annan’s vision for a fairer, more peaceful world.
This was his wish, and this is our mission.
