Announcing the eBASE Global Fellow for Education 2020

Admin eBASE, Tue 23rd, Jun 2020, 05:10

The maiden global fellow for Africa, Rigobert Hanny Pambe Miong, is a young TVET teacher. His school, Government Technical High School Awing, is located in a restive rural area in Cameroon, where conflict resulting from teachers requesting reforms in educational systems erupted in November 2016. His community is also affected by COVID-19.

Rigobert has also been active with eBASE Africa’s teacher to teacher program since 2015 and has registered 2 systematic review titles with the Campbell collaboration. He has shared some of his experiences at local and international evidence conferences in Cameroon and South Africa within the African Evidence Network.

Rigobert is passionate about effective TVET interventions in both formal and informal sectors and especially for girls in rural communities. He has implemented one evidence project on ICT for TVET in 5 schools in the North West Region of Cameroon, reaching 80 youths in learning environments.

He is married to Patricia with a daughter named Sky. Rigobert loves watching football.

 The eBASE Global Fellowship is proudly funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) in the UK. These fellowships will be available for 2 to 4 teachers from Middle Africa every year for the next 4 years.

We particularly encourage female French-speaking teachers, teachers with disabilities, and teachers of Mbororo or Baka backgrounds to apply. Please express your interest: contact@ebaseafrica.org
