It is with great sadness and shock that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Benedictus Agbelom, after a car accident in Ghana. Benedictus helped craft our #MMN – Migrant Media Network project, which aimed to deliver information systems and safe alternatives to migration for people from his home country of Ghana. 

Benedictus, who loved playing badminton, listening to music, and cooking, grew up in Akosombo (Dam City) in the Eastern Region of Ghana and studied at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi. His work and studies at home inspired him to further his education in project management, which led him to Germany, where he received his master’s degree in Project Management from Arden University in Berlin. Benedictus’s work with us at the r0g_agency also complemented his love of entrepreneurship and his sense of service in helping empower fellow youth in Ghana, where he co-founded studentjobs.gh.

A deep passion for helping others, combined with his humble, caring, and kind character fueled a dedication to see people excel. This led Benedictus to improve the lives of his community and help make his country, indeed the world we share and live in, a much better place. He will be sorely missed by all of us.
