Livingstone Delali Agbo
Livingstone Delali Agbo is a graduate of the University for Development Studies with a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Community Development. He has over five years experience in the non-profit sector and working with underserved communities. Besides his background in community development, he is also a Visual Artist and Songwriter.
His passion for youth empowerment, volunteering and teaching sparked while he volunteered with the UK Government-Funded International Citizenship Service program in the Volta Region, Ghana. He worked with a team of volunteers to develop an action research to improve the livelihood of farmers. He trained farmers in good agricultural practices, building business plans, marketing, and branding. He was later appointed a Team Leader on the Lattitude Global Volunteers program, where he led a team of volunteers on the Adaklu Waya Livelihood Project in the Volta Region of Ghana. Livingstone has volunteered in various capacities to support several non-profits and charities such as the African Science Academy, Everyday People GH, NeedBe Foundation, and Yo Ghana.
Livingstone completed a two-year Leadership Fellowship Program with Lead For Ghana (LFG), a movement of solution-driven leaders expanding educational opportunities to all children in Ghana. He taught English Language in the Metsrikasa D/A Basic School in the Volta Region, and served as a mentor for Teacher Trainees. As a Fellow, he was successful in transforming the school culture, and impacting the lives of pupils and the community at large. He planned, raised funds, and collaborated with key stakeholders to establish a library and computer lab in the school. Currently, he is a Leadership Growth Associate at Lead For Ghana, where he manages fellows, supports them in their classroom practice and leadership journey.
His creative ability and self-awareness helps him to be innovative and resilient in difficult situations. He has established an art business called Deep Creative Arts (DCA), where he provides freelance services in painting, drawing and screen printing. His long term goal is to register DCA as a social enterprise that supports the disadvantaged, provides jobs, and empowers the youth of Ghana. In the next 20 years, he hopes to see a country (Ghana) that provides the enabling environment for children to develop their full potential, become ethical leaders, and successful entrepreneurs.
