Creating a global organization that responds to the Cry of the Poor and the Cry of the Earth by mobilizing global resources and  funding for advancing thought and action, at scale.


Our Mission is to facilitate connection, collaboration and action with multi-sectoral partners; mobilizing funding for scalable and inclusive projects that respond to the Cry of the Poor and the Cry of the Earth, as referenced in The Holy Father Pope Francis’ Encyclical Letter - Laudato sì: On Care for Our Common Home.


Cardinal Peter K. Turkson

Professor Edward S. Ayensu

“The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change.” (Laudato sì 13)

The ECHo team has the blessings and mandate of His Eminence Cardinal Turkson and Professor Ayensu - a formidable wealth of deep wisdom and leadership - of two sons of the African Continent, who lead in some of the most influential and significant global organizations.

Who we are

Laudato sì

We are guided by the Encyclical Letter of Pope Francis

This seminal Papal Letter speaks to people of all faiths, to come together as the human family and urgently respond to the debilitating force of indifference, vulnerability, marginalization, poverty, biodiversity loss and climate injustice.
