Louise Adongo

Program Consultant, Skills & Learning Branch, NS Department of Labour & Advanced Education


Louise Adongo has irrepressible curiosity and a keen interest in supporting communities to better themselves. Unafraid to try new things, or do old things differently, Louise has worked on projects with many teams in several sectors in Nova Scotia and different parts of Africa.

During her first experience in community development, on a human rights issue of access to water, she discovered her passion for social justice and equitable access to resources. Since then she has worked in a variety of research, policy and evaluation roles in provincial government for close to a decade. 

An avid reader, traveler and gardener with multidisciplinary interests, Louise holds two Biochemistry degrees and a Masters in Applied Health Services Research. Louise also volunteers as a Board member at the Health Association of African Canadians, the Freetown Initiative and is a member of a Health Policy Translation working group in a Canadian health research organization.  

Most recently, Louise founded Caprivian Strip Inc. consultancy, providing advice and support to not-for-profits  agencies seeking to sustain their client services both locally and across the globe.
