Head of Programs


‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has’

Hello, I am Teiko Sabah, Head of Programmes here at STAR-Ghana. This means I support the STAR-Ghana team to deliver effectively on programme objectives. To achieve this, we partner with key stakeholders such as civil society organisations, groups, networks and associations; donors; state agencies; parliament; media and the wider Ghanaian public; we support and link up local work to national and international policy discussions; we convene discussions on locally salient issues and catalyze civil society actions towards the overall goal of contributing to transformational change.

My previous roles include working for Amarteifio & Co (a prestigious law firm in Accra), the Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG) as Chief Operations Officer, Technical Adviser to the Executive Secretary of UNECA in Addis Ababa and as Programmes Manager/ Country Manager for Christian Aid Ghana’s office. I also worked with Civic Response as Forest watch Ghana Coordinator as well as with Care International.

I am a lawyer, an organisational development practitioner and I have extensive experience in civil society advocacy, programme management and fundraising. I am a member of the Board of Participatory Development Associates (PDA). I have the following qualifications:
• June 2014 – LLB GIMPA
• March 2006 - MA Development Studies UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
• March 2006 - PG(Dip) Organisational Development UNIVERSITY OF CAPE COAST
• JUNE 2002 - BSC. Agric Science KNUST

I love dogs and currently have three lovely breeds- Zooma (Rodeshian ridgeback), Bambi (mixed breed Dachsung) and Empress (I think she is Doberman). In my spare time, I swim, plant flowers in my garden and write a blog on pan africanism. I am interested in the link between law and social policy issues, social fundraising and hope to run the Accra Marathon by 2020.

My husband Carl and I are blessed with Kekeli, Shade and Nayira Sabah.
