Who is Joseph Wemakor?
Joseph Wemakor is a staunch human rights advocate and a journalist by profession. As a prolific writer and a freelancer, he has used his skills and profession to drive home critical human right issues and news on many online news portals. The work and responsibilities of the Editor-in-Chief of Ghananewsone.com rest on his shoulders. Credible news items relating to the abuse of women, girls and children and other are his hallmarks as a human rights advocate.
He is becoming an important linchpin when it comes to reporting on human rights abuse issues and stories in Ghana. Mention the gender-based voices and the abuse of vulnerable people and he seeks to help deal with the canker via his journalistic work.
Human rights abuses against women, girls, and children and how to find lasting solutions for victims one story at a time keep him going and wanting to do more.
Out of his fertile brain and love for the fight for the rights of women, girls and children who are abused, emerged the Human Rights Reporters Ghana (HRRG), a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
This organization aims at halting all forms of human rights violations suffered by girls, women, and children in Ghana and beyond.
We can say, his contribution and commitment to advocacy work are second to none. His immeasurable experience we believe will be a valuable asset to the PLO Lumumba Foundation, Ghana chapter. It’s a challenge we believe he can surmount to deliver efficiently and effectively.
