The AKADi Magazine is inspired by the meaning ‘source of light’ in the Ghanaian language Ewe.

This publication aims to shine a light on the transformative actions and inspiring experiences of ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things. The content is designed to illuminate, inform, and inspire.

The publication is quarterly and covers topics including business, health and well-being, art, literature, history that are anchored around issues of social significance. We shares stories from individuals who are challenging, shaping and disrupting stereotypes about Africa and Africans through their personal stories.

AKADi explores language endangerment and its impact on Ghanaian diaspora communities; featured entrepreneur stories in tech and business, and examined various aspects of mental health and the challenges of diagnosis and treatment.
