About Me:
My work with Civil Society Organizations in Ghana started in the early part of 1998. It all begun with a drive to promote the livelihood of young people and children in the Tema Metropolis. This drive then gave birth to Abibimman Foundation in partnership with a friend who also had the same vision.

Since 1998, I have been involved in a number of regional, national and international advocacy campaigns. In view of my belief in social justice and better livelihoods, I am actively engaged in the campaign for human rights, Democracy, trade justice, Peace, climate, youth employment and sanitation. I am also a member of the Ghana MDGs Campaign Coalition, Assistant Coordinator for Ghana GCAP, GTLC and the African Youth Coalition Against EPAs.

My Organisation / Group
Abibimman Foundation is a Non-Profit Oriented, Non-Partisan, Non-Governmental Organisation (RGD G 5,895, DSW 2525) established in 2000 in Tema. It has dedicated itself to the promotion of sustainable livelihoods, peace and development. The essential thrust of Abibimman Foundation is to enhance livelihoods in peaceful and developed environment through Cultural, Formal and Non-Formal Education, Civic and Health Education, Human Right and Environmental Protection, and General Activities. Its mission statement is “to ameliorate conflict situations and promote a culture of peace, sustainable livelihoods, democracy and development based on knowledge of cultural, civic, and human right, environmental and health issues. Promote cultural, formal and non-formal education as well as technical and vocational skill development to enhance employment and job opportunities for a better standard of human development”. The Foundation upholds the principles of the United Nations and African Union.

The Foundation focus its efforts mainly on children and youth by promoting the needed awareness, and help address their development challenges while utilizing them as positive agents in the promotion of sustainable livelihoods, peace and development through facilitated collaboration among various partners in their communities. The Foundation develop concepts and implement programmes based on a “combined approached matrix” and methodologies that enable its audience to identify problems, set priority, and address needs assessments which act as catalyst for actions with appropriate decision and policy–makers with burden-alleviation and cost-effectiveness analysis. Seen as crucial to the promotion of sustainable livelihoods, peace and development and help break the vicious circle of unemployment, poverty and underdevelopment, the Foundation, since January 2000, has implemented major child and youth development oriented events (excluding schools / clubs / institutions visitation, media presentation, workshop, seminar and conference attendances).
