Zep, creator of the renowned cartoon character Titeuf, shared his career and quick-thinking drawing skill with an audience at Wadham College.
Right for Education (R:Ed) is Africa's largest dedicated online educational resource. The platform has a readership of 6.7+ million across the Sub-Saharan African continent. Its mission is to promote educational and economic empowerment across the African continent. Toward that end, R:Ed's content aims to be timeless, afrocentric, and informative.
Matt Robyns-Landricombe, a first year undergraduate studying French, was appointed as president of the Oxford branch last month.
"The Oxford team are the powerhouse behind the content on the R:Ed platform..."
"The Oxford team are the powerhouse behind the content on the R:Ed platform, so it really is an honour to be leading a team of incredible people - including two Wadhamites!", he says.
Here's how Matt described his work with R:Ed: "I work directly with the CEO and with the central organisation in Ghana to produce a framework for how content should be drafted and delivered. I also work to train new R:Ed content teams, like the new chapter in Uganda, in content creation and objectivity. This has been an incredibly rewarding position so far, and working with hugely talented people across the world is an absolute pleasure."
His current initiatives centre around giving back to the volunteers.
"With any NGO, volunteer retention and satisfaction are key to ensuring success, as volunteers are the heart of an organisation. I will be creating The R:Ed Network, a platform where R:Ed's international volunteers can share employment opportunities and tips for personal development."
When Matt shared, he was looking forward to hosting a meeting with the Founder of the charity, Dr Susi Dattenberg-Doyle, and the R:Ed Oxford team at Wadham. "I am very grateful to college for accommodating the meeting!"
