THE EMMANUEL IVORGBA FOUNDATION,SIERRA LEONE
Sierra Leone, in western Africa owes its name to the 15th-century Portuguese explorer Pedro de Sintra, the first European to sight and map Freetown harbour. The original Portuguese name, Serra Lyoa ("Lion Mountains"), referred to the range of hills that surrounds the harbour. The capital, Freetown, commands one of the world's largest natural harbours. Although most of the population is engaged in subsistence agriculture, the country is also rich in diamonds and other minerals such as gold, bauxite and rutile (titanium dioxide).
The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation is registered as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in the Republic of Sierra Leone. The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation's areas of interventions in Sierra Leone include empowerment of women in rural areas through Agriculture and micro finance, Education, Youth Leadership and Capacity Development, Social Entrepreneurship and Governance.
