Kwabena Antwi Boasiako

President, Humanist Association of Ghana

My name is Michael Osei Assibey but many of my friends know me by my given name, Kwabena Antwi Boasiako. I am a humanist, freethinker, and engineer.

I am passionate about dialogues that bring positive change. From anthropology to zoology, my interests take me wherever my understanding of the universe and the intricacies of human behaviour could be expanded. I am also particularly interested in the idea of human suffering and societal inequalities, their origins and how to mitigate or possibly eliminate them.

The best thing about being a professional building services engineer,  who runs his own consultancy firm is that it affords me the time to follow my other passions. Passions like heading the Humanist Association of Ghana for the past year and carrying out projects that speak to the inclusive and more equal society that I hope for the future. These projects include book-drives to aid children from low-income families improve their reading skills, podcasts to discuss and present humanist perspectives on social issues as well as running monthly meetings and providing safe spaces for discussions devoid of dogma.

I am married to my loving partner, Roslyn Mould who is also a part of this editorial team.
