54-year-old Agyedho Othwonh Bwogo is Danmission’s new development adviser who will be taking care of Danmission’s poverty reduction work in Madagascar.
Since 1978 Danmission has been engaged with different activities on the large island which is located in the Indian Ocean 400 kilometres east of Africa’s coast. Today Danmission is working with church development, poverty reduction and dialogue to strengthen the country, which is one of the world’s poorest and where three out of four families are living in poverty.
Agyedho Othwonh Bwogo will be responsible for developing Danmission’s poverty reduction work and supervising and monitoring projects and budgets as well as working with capacity building and advisory services. She will be working closely a long side with Danmission’s partner, the Malagasy Lutheran Church (FLM) and other partners.
