Program Manager & Co-Founder
Abena’s fire for social enterprise was lit when she worked for Earth Hour and created Jane’s Walk in Singapore. It burned much brighter after interning at YGAP in Melbourne. The scene here is flourishing and she is excited to be a part of it.
As Program Manager at Compass, Abena can finally share her enthusiasm for social enterprise with others and answer the question on minds of many –how do I make a difference? She has just completed the Executive Masters of Arts at the University of Melbourne.
