Remembering Kofi Annan

Kofi Annan was a beloved leader from the African Nation of Ghana. He served as UN (United Nations) Secretary-General for 10 years from 1997 to 2006. He passed away at the age of 80, on August 18, 2018.

He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001 for revitalizing the UN and for making it a relevant organisation to navigate today’s challenges. He tried to make leaders, countries, and companies more socially aware, and to help minorities and the poor. He was a driving force for a ‘fairer and more peaceful world’ (Kofi Annan Foundation). He is being mourned all over the world, and will be sorely missed.
