 Our Programs

Our programs, at The Emmanuel Ivorgba Center, are designed to provide individuals with the skills and knowledge they need to create positive change in their communities. We work with local partners to deliver education and training programs that are tailored to the specific needs of each community.

We also conduct rigorous research, analyze data, and generate knowledge to deepen the understanding of poverty dynamics, identify root causes, and inform evidence-based policies and interventions. Through our research, we seek to contribute to the global knowledge base on poverty eradication and share actionable insights with policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders.

Get Involved

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Center envisions a world where poverty and hunger are not just alleviated through temporary measures, but where the underlying structural causes are addressed, ensuring sustainable and lasting impacts. Our work extends beyond the eradication of poverty and hunger to the promotion of sustainable development, where economic growth is inclusive, environmental resources are preserved, and social well-being is prioritized.

​We believe that everyone can make a difference. There are many ways to get involved with The Emmanuel Ivorgba Center and support our mission. You can volunteer your time, make a donation, or become a partner. Together, we can break the cycle of poverty and hunger and create a better world for all.
