Albert since 2008 in Ghana

"After an intensive period in which he worked as a volunteer in Ghana, the Dutch entrepreneur Albert van Beek started to invest in his own project in Tinkong. Although he found out his volunteering job was not sustainable at all, he was convinced of the use and need for sustainable development in this little and underdeveloped village. There is a great lack of jobs, poor education facilities, hardly any health care and a bad infrastructure."

    I am the manager of Live Now Foundation in Ghana since 2010. By then I was still busy with my education at the University of Cape Coast. Originally I planned to be a marketeer. Now I have a post graduate diploma in business administration, certified for NGO Management. Ik was born in Akim Oda in the Eastern Ghana Region, a town not far from Koforidua, but most of my living years I've spent in Koforidua.
