Edem Dzunu, Ph.D.

edemdzunu@baobabpeople.org

Dr. Edem Dzunu was born and raised in Ghana and has always been passionate about different people’s ways of life. He is fascinated by details about people, things and situations different from who he is and what he is accustomed to. His love and fascination for knowledge and understanding of different cultures has taken him to many different places in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America, both as an enquiring mind and a contributor to knowledge. As one who travels and enjoys traveling, what he cherishes most is the opportunity to meet people and know about them in an environment of mutual respect. It is this desire that led to the establishment of Baobab People. Edem has degrees in Music, English, TEFL, Theology and Ethics, and currently teaches in the English Language Program at Washington University in Saint Louis.
