About the Centre for Peace, Justice and Reconciliation:
The pillar of peace behind the mission is the Very Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Mathew Paul Edeh, C.S. Sp.; OFR, who founded the Centre in Africa. His priestly foundation led him to academia, articulating and formulating the Mmadi philosophy, which gave way to a school of thought known as Edeh’s philosophy of Thought and Action. The main thought behind it is the “good that is” –our duty to recognize the good in others, reciprocating God’s love to us by providing for and sustaining our neighbor. The Mmadi philosophy serves as the pillar for Rev. Edeh’s initiative, now adopted by universities worldwide as well as governmental and non-governmental institutions. Rev. Edeh conceived the Madonna International Charity Peace Award Foundation.
