    Christabel Dadzie - Founder of Ahaspora (Rebroadcast)

    Christabel E. Dadzie is the founder of Ahaspora, a group that helps professional Ghanaian returnees with help and support. Before Christabel founded the group, she studied international relations at the College of Wooster in 2004 and then went on to continue her graduate study at Colombia University.

    It was when she returned to Ghana in 2010 that she realized that there was a need for a support group for Ghanaian returnees. So with twelve other Ghanaian returnees, they help formed the Ahaspora group in 2011 as a listserv. Currently, the group has 1800 members.

    Christabel currently works for the World Bank as a Social Protection Specialist but makes time to help manage the listserv where they schedule happy hour events and other projects to help give back to the local community.
