Dear Sir/Madam,

 

RE: JOHN DUMELO APPOINTED AS YOUTH FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AFRICA (YoHRA)’S HUMAN RIGHTS AMBASSADOR EXTRAORDINAIRE


On 17th April, 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between the continental human rights organization, Youth for Human Rights Africa (YoHRA) and award winning movie actor and star, Mr. John Dumelo.

YoHRA finds the collaboration with Mr. John Dumelo, who is desirous of being a strong advocate for the promotion and preservation of fundamental rights through entertainment, to be very strategic. Through the partnership with YoHRA, Mr. Dumelo would use his wide social media, corporate networks, and international appeal to rally support to advance human rights in Ghana and on the continent of Africa.  The areas of his work would include galvanizing support for the thematic areas of YoHRA: Human Rights Education & Promotion, Research, Publication, Training, Litigation and Advocacy.

In a brief meeting at the YoHRA office on Tuesday, 17th of April, Mr. Dumelo promised to use all his platforms to raise the necessary support for the works of YoHRA especially the 2nd Annual Ghana Youth Human Rights Conference 2018, scheduled to be held from 1st to 3rd November, 2018. Mr. Dumelo is also a philanthropist and the Founder of The Dumelo Foundation.

On his part, the President of YoHRA, Francis-Xavier Sosu was excited about the collaboration and was thankful to Mr. Dumelo for accepting the invitation to assist the project. “There are lots of violations out there. Most of the victims and perpetrators alike lack education hence the continuous violation. I therefore find this collaboration very needful so we can mobilize the requisite logistics, human and financial resources to make human rights a priority in Ghana and other African Countries” – Mr. Sosu

 I invite the media, corporate Ghana, other individuals and organizations to come on board to promote a safe society for us all. Unite with YoHRA to promote peaceful co-existence through our dedicated human rights education and advocacy.

Signed.

CHRISTOPHER SELORM ANKOU

(Director of Communication, YoHRA)
