Speaking about his experience discussing his work with HRH Duchess of Sussex, Ephraim said:
The new Representative and Country Director of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) for Ghana, Ms Rukia Yacoub has assumed office.
She brings to her post, a wealth of experience in implementing, managing and coordinating humanitarian and development programmes, both in least developed and lower-middle income countries.
Windle Trust International is delighted to celebrate the success of two WTI UK Programme scholars from the academic year 2016-17 who have achieved Distinctions on their postgraduate degrees.
Abraham Dut Atem Malek was awarded a Distinction for his MSc in Finance and Accounting at the University of Westminster, and his MSc dissertation scored the highest mark of any student in his cohort.
In October we said goodbye to the WTI students from 2016-17 who returned back to Kenya, Uganda, and South Sudan. Our graduating year studied the subjects below:
The University of Bangor: MSc Agroforestry, MSc Public Health & Health Promotion, LLM International Criminal Law
The University of Bath: MSc International Development
University College London: MSc Musculoskeletal Science
University College London, Institute of Education: MA Education and International Development
King's College London: MA Global Mental Health
As students from the 2016-17 academic year begin returning home, we look back on this year of the UK Scholarship Programme.
On the 21 of September 2016, I found myself on a flight to the UK, to travel to the University of Warwick via the WTI office in Oxford to study in one of the greatest universities in the UK. I had no idea what to expect, although I knew this would academically progress my entire career. Even though I knew it was going to be a challenging study experience, I set my mind to learn and change, and to take in the new experiences.
We are delighted to congratulate Christine Anyango Modi, who has been awarded the Paul Roy Award for Outstanding Contribution from the University of Liverpool. Christine was awarded a trophy and certificate in recognition of her excellent performance during her MSc in Human Resource Management, 2015-16.
Christine says, “It’s just an honour to be a WTI Scholar. Lots of thanks goes to the WTI foundation for the achievements that I have received.”
This Autumn we are delighted to welcome the new Windle Trust International scholars to the UK for the 2016-2017 academic year. This year we have 20 students.
Windle Trust International is delighted to report that one of our former students, Anthony Poggo, who is currently the Bishop of the Diocese of Kajo-Keji has been appointed by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to the role of adviser on Anglican Communion Affairs.
Anthony Poggo has a long history in community and church development. As a Windle scholar, he completed an MBA at Oxford Brookes University in 2001 before returning to South Sudan where he joined ACROSS, one of South Sudan’s oldest and most respected ngo’s, eventually becoming its Executive Director.
