Mr. Tony Dzidzinyo Dogbe
Mr. Tony Dzidzinyo Dogbe is one of the founders of PDA and its former managing director (2008-2012) and co-director (2001-2008). He is an experienced social and community development worker, trainer, researcher, manager, consultant and workshop facilitator/moderator. He has worked with government, non-government and private sector institutions in various areas of human development endeavour. For nearly nine years he was the Executive Director of one of the leading Ghanaian NGOs, Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP) and thereafter served on its Board from 2000 to 2009. Prior to this he worked for VSO as a programme officer responsible for social and community development as well as managing its office in Tamale. From 2000-2004, he was on VSO’s Board of Trustees in the U.K. The experience he now draws on as a consultant and advisor is thus based on a broad but in-depth experience of governmental and non-governmental organisations, working from village to national policy level.
As well as working as a freelance consultant, Tony is currently spearheading a number of new initiatives including PDA’s Agro-industry and Social Enterprise (PASE). Tony holds an MSc in Community Organisation for Rural Development (Manchester UK, 1991), and a BA (Hons) in Political Science and Sociology (University of Ghana 1982).
