OUR HISTORY

The OLOF PALME PEACE FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL was founded in the African country of Ghana in 1986 in order to promote freedom, justice, dignity, unity, and peace for the people of that nation and worldwide. Our foundation is affiliated with the United Nations-Department of Public Information (DPI).

We are non-profit, non-political, and non- partisan. Our founder and Executive President is Osoronko Nana-Yabani, a UN Peace Messenger. The inspiration behind our organization is the deceased former prime minister of Sweden, Olof Palme, a towering figure in the field of international peace and justice for all mankind. Olof Palme served as Prime Minister of Sweden twice: 14 Oct 1969-08 Oct 1976, and again 08 Oct 1982-28 Feb 1986, when he was assassinated by an unknown gunman while coming from a theatre with his wife
