Do you want to find out about how you can start a career, out of your experience of been cared for and your passion for caring for other people?
Listen to this episode of your favourite motivational Personal Innovation Podcast as I chat with Daniel Kweku Anguah Jr: founder of CARE, Child and Human Rights Activist and Social Entrepreneur.
In this Chat, Daniel Kweku Anguah Jr. said his childhood was not something he can wish for any child growing up today.
Coming from financially challenged family, Daniel had to sleep in a bar with his family. This bar serves as a bedroom in the nights and turns into a drinking spot in the day.
Fortunately Daniel became adopted by the SOS Children village where he lived and was taken good care of.
Interestingly, the fact that Daniel feels cared for, he has vowed to care for others as well through out his life.
Daniel believs “ no dream is ever too small.
D.K Anguah Jr, casually known as the Afrikan Son, is a multipotentialite, focused on Children’s Rights and Human Rights activism across Ghana with over 5 years of experience. He founded Children Are Reason Enough (C.A.R.E), a child rights protection and activism organisation which he has been running with his team of volunteers for the past 4 years.
As a strong proponent of Human Rights, Anguah believes that when people have better comprehension on the laws that govern and affect them, they will be well equipped to improve upon their lives at every point in time and defend themselves in most situations.
Based on this philosophy, he started a grassroots legal and human right advocacy called Left Rights, which works to protect Human rights and ensure no rights are left behind in the fast growing dynamism of the world.
He has facilitated sessions on Children’s Rights and Human rights at the Solutions Summit and World Economic Forum on Africa, both in Durban with African Government and Business Leaders.
He is a Co-founder of the Goldcoast Volunteers, in pursuance of his goals to improve and promote the value of volunteerism as a tool for nation building.
He is passionate about issues surrounding refugees because, he is a strong believer that refugees have rights which must recognised by all, to enable them integrate into societies.
The Afrikan Son is a self-taught wood engineer. He is a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum, a TEDx Speaker, TEDx Curator, and a volunteer at heart.
