A social worker and have the passion to work with the vulnerable especially women and children in the protection of their rights, education and poverty alleviation. I have an advance degree in Msc. Local Economic Development and hold a B.A (Hons.) Integrated Development Studies from the University for Development Studies.  I also hold a certificate in Education from the University of Cape Coast and have a professional course certificate in project management and a certificate in policy advocacy and engagement.  I work for Songtaba as a programme director and lead a team of twelve staff and six volunteers to implement both local and international projects. I have developed my ability in the area of programme planning and implementation, monitoring as well as working in partnership with state agencies and other organizations. This has given me much leadership, communication skills and the ability to work in a team environment. I believe in team building, shared learning, networking and collaborative partnership with all relevant staff and stakeholders. On Advocacy and media publicity, I have advocated for the support of Government in alleviating the situation of allege witches in Ghana under the women’s rights programme and has succeeded in bringing to the fore the need for Government to approach the disbarments of the allege witches camps with caution. This has gained grounds as government has put a committee to that effect and in December 2014, one of the alleged witches’ camps was disbanded. Facilitate the advocacy on media on the adoption of the community by-law by the district Assemblies.





  Kasiru grew up in Tamale with both parents and after completing a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and English from the University of Cape Coast, he taught communication skills at the Tamale Technical University as a teaching assistant as part of the one year mandatory national service programme in Ghana. Kasiru joined Songtaba in 2012 as a programme assistant. Now Senior programmes Officer at Songtaba Kasiru holds a Masters degree in NGO Management and Rural development from the University for Development Studies. When he is not behind his computer developing new concepts and programme insights to improve Songtaba’s development work, then you will find him charting with friends. His passion for development work dates back to his High school days when he was an active member and later the organizing secretary of the Africa Youth peace Call (AYPC). The Africa Youth peace Call (AYPC) was a network of Ghanaian youth engaged in activities that was geared towards youth development as well as bringing peace in our communities in the northern region, especially during the time when the region was characterize by pockets of communal violence.
