Didi Altena: Chair
“In February 2017 I got first involved with Right2Education as a buddy. What struck me most during my first few months was the positivity within the community Right2Education aims to create. I see Right2Education as a platform for exchange. The reason why Right2Education works is because it is not just run by the 8 members in its board, but by the entire community. We create, share and learn together on a non-hierarchical basis.
Willing to play a more significant part in this process, I applied to become the Treasurer and Head of Acquisitions in 2017. In 2017-2018, this was the position I fulfilled by trying to create opportunities for Right2Education and its students through the recruitment of financial means. Now, one year later, I am the Internal Communications Manager and make sure everything runs smoothly within the board in order to ensure we live up to our potential and accommodate for the needs of our students as well as possible.”
