Emmanuel Ivorgba

Dr. Emmanuel Ande Ivorgba dreams of “a peaceful world, one in which the smiles of humanity shine brighter than the sun itself.” His life’s work is making this dream come true for his community and country, and reaching out to young people around the world to create a culture of peace. In his native Nigeria, years of longstanding religious and tribal violence fueled by political strife and economic inequities have claimed thousands of lives and torn the fabric of society. Emmanuel has planted himself squarely in the epicenter of that violence, the city of Jos in Plateau State, to sow the seeds of peace between Christians and Muslims, Igbo and Hausa, rich and poor, farmer and herder, man and woman.
