My name is Joseph Tettey Afangbe, I am a young social activist from Ghana Accra. I am graduate from University of Cape Coast with a Bachelor of Commerce. I am the founder and the Executive Director of the Young Visionary Leaders Ghana a National Non-Govermental Youth Led Organisation that is ensuring universal basic human rights such as right to quality education, good health and well being, access to water, gender equality for all through advocacy, dialogue and policy review at both district and national levels in Ghana. I am a social worker with over seven years of experience in the areas of advocacy and policy reviews. I work as the executive director of the Young Visionary Leaders Ghana, where I coordinate and lead day by day activities both within and outside the organisation. By joining this network, I would be well groomed by learning from other networks members through their engagement on legal advocacy and the use of the right advocacy tools. I believe this network would also help in equipping myself with the right tools for the legal advocacy engagement through webinars and other engagement with the network members.
