Organization Description

The Kofi Annan Foundation (KAF), established in 2007 by the late Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, is an independent, non-profit organization based in Switzerland. Dedicated to fostering peaceful, democratic, and resilient societies, the foundation operates under the belief that sustainable development, security, and the rule of law are interconnected elements crucial for societal well-being.

Kofi Annan’s vision emphasized the inseparable link between development and security, asserting that a prosperous society relies on the rule of law and respect for human rights. Aligned with this philosophy, the Kofi Annan Foundation focuses on Peace and Security, Sustainable Development, Human Rights and the Rule of Law. The foundation is committed to mobilizing leadership and political determination to address diverse threats to these pillars, including violent conflicts, flawed elections, and climate change. Their ultimate goal is to contribute to creating a fairer and more peaceful world.
