Mr. A.A. Iddi
Mr. A. A. Iddi holds a BA in Integrated Development Studies (IDS) with a concentration in Social and Development Administration and a Master’s in Philosophy in Development Studies from the University for Development Studies (UDS) Wa Campus. He is a founding member of NOYED-Ghana and has been the Executive Director since its inception in 2005.
A trailblazer at heart, Iddi led many leadership teams throughout his youth and school days. Most outstanding among these leadership roles are: President of the Student Representative Council (SRC); Secretary to the Judiciary Board of the Graduate Students Association; SRC Representative on the Third Trimester Field Practical’s Programme Board (TTFPP) for 2 years, all at the University for Development Studies, Wa Campus; Assistant Collage Secretary, Tamale Training College; Northern Regional Youth Wing Coordinator of the Ghana United Nations Students and Youth Associations (GUNSA); and Zonal Leader, Zone ‘D’ of the Ghana Red Cross Society.
He is committed to NOYED-Ghana’s vision and endeavors to create long-lasting partnerships. These partnerships would be with local, national, and international organizations alike, businesses, and individuals. He hopes these relationships prove successful in increasing the impact and influence of programs and campaigns being delivered to communities in Ghana, particularly in the north.
Beyond mainstream education, he has also undertaken and participated in a series of courses and workshops both locally and internationally to deepen his credentials and capacity to deliver on the organizational mandate. He has successfully managed relationships and projects with major partners such as Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), EMpower, and the Emerging Market Foundation Limited, to mention but a few.
Mr. A.A. Iddi has been involved with the aid and development sectors for more than a decade now, and through his work with NGOs, he feels his involvement with NOYED-Ghana is more of a lifestyle than a source of livelihood.
