My name is Alex Agbedu, but affectionately called Lexis. I am a graphic designer, a student and a volunteer. I have worked with children with different age groups and backgrounds in my previous employments. I like to cause change in my own small way. This is why I love being around children. If they learn right the basics, they are equipped well enough to make greater impact on society.
If am away from all these, I would be watching movies, listening to music, reading a
novel or perhaps watching a football match. I like to update myself with news, current
affairs and most trending issues.
Ben has been involved with Move the World since 2015 when we ran a collaborative Community Day with 1 Billion Africa, one of our partner organisations. Since then Ben has been involved with numerous projects for MTW and many collaborative programmes including a Young Leaders Retreat, Ammambr3, and Tech2Orphans. We are so happy to have him officially on board as a Get Global Facilitator now- here’s his story.
Doing what you love doing best is one of the easiest way to achieve satisfaction and total emancipation. I have been a beneficiary of some of Move The World Training programs throughout the years and I bet you it has really impacted me positively.
MTW gives you the space to be your self whiles reaching your capabilities. I had the chance to meet like-minded people who are ever ready to share, learn, play and eat with me.
As a young man with the passion to transform my society and help raise peoples standard of living, Move The World was one of my major springboard to achieving that dream.
Enrolling as Move The World Facilitator this year has been one of my greatest wins in 2020. It has placed me in an environment where I have discovered and recovered some of my God given potentials. It has given me the opportunity to learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals and impact it into the younger generation of the Medie Community.
With the kids, the joy on their faces during class time is more than enough motivation and satisfaction. It has not only benefited the people of Medie community but my immediate family. They are now more conscious of the SDGs and doing everything they need to do to promote it.
Joe, simple and easy-going who sees the best side of this world in the smiles of people. A Ghanaian cultural dancer who loves all forms of art and always willing to share whatever skills he’s blessed with.
Working with MTW in his community has been a joyful journey and still is for him. Mostly all the kids in his community know him now and have a special name for him “obroni papa”, please don’t ask for the meaning here haha but join the UK team on their adventurous trips to Ghana and he is willing to tell you what that means and many more!
Learning something new is always a big YES for him and as the future is untold, he likes to roll with the smooth flow of nature.
I respond to the name, Margaret Osei. A very dedicated, skilled and motivated young woman among 2 siblings.

Margaret has volunteered for the past 5 years within communities and with public and private organizations having common interests in development.
She is currently volunteering as a lead facilitator with Move The World on the Get Global Education Programme to train and build capacities of young people on the Sustainable Development Goals. She believes this will facilitate skilled and motivated young people to become role models who will be there to create change in the community and the world at large.
