We are back to highlight another member of our team. Meet Edward Nii Darpoh, the Plant Manager for CASH IT!
We like to get to know what drives our employees and how they contribute to our organization.
You have been with us for a few months. What do you think about ASASE now?
I see Asase as a growing initiative with an engaging team ready to do whatever it takes to achieve our vision for the community. Everyone in this community knows about ASASE and everyday people call to join us. I am happy to join it.
What is the most challenging part of your work today?
We have our equipment done locally and use workers from the community to work on our equipment. So we take a lot of time training our people and bringing the equipment to the best standards to achieve our goals, such as trying to increase production daily. I am spending most of my time in the plant with our workers to figure out how best to manage them. This includes making sure they produce with the best possible standards.
What motivates you the most?
We should learn from our failures in how we treat our trash and gain experience to expand to other communities. I want to make an impact on my community in Accra and even all of Ghana by cleaning up our environment. And for this, we need all those who share these passions to join our efforts and ride the journey with us.
Do you have children?
Yes, I have 2 boys and I explained to them about my work today. They are very happy about it! They like learning about recycling and now they believe that recycling all this plastic that is littered all over Accra can be possible!
