Senyo Kudzo Adeti
Senyo Kudzo Adeti is a social/charity worker with past experience from Emefa Help Ghana and Trokosi Abolish Fellowship International Ghana. Currently holds a (Diploma in Gandhian Nonviolence theory and Application) from the Gujarat Vidyapith, Ahmedabad. India. An institution established by Mahatma Gandhi Himself. I believe firmly that Gandhi’s message of Truth, Love and Nonviolence (Ahimsa) is still relevant today. Or even more relevant than ever before, considering the high level of Poverty/Inequality we are facing especially in Africa, and the increase of different forms of violence in both personal and public life. The ethic of nonviolence, as practiced and cultivated by Mahatma Gandhi, live on, regardless of national or political boundaries. By this firm believe and a seeker of truth I find it more ideal to propagate the ideas of the “MAHATMA’’ to Africa and the World.
