Literacy Project Officer
Richard has spent most of the last decade organising volunteer development projects in Africa and Latin America. Working at a grass roots level in rural communities, he has endeavoured to provide access to basic human rights, especially within the fields of education and nutrition. In his previous job, Richard was the Operations Manager for Latin America of a social enterprise which provided vital learning experiences for young people from around the world.
Richard has an undergraduate degree in Arabic and Spanish from the University of Leeds and is passionate about learning languages and the opportunities this can create. He has joined the Universal Learning Solutions team hoping that his love for languages can be channelled into making a positive impact on literacy in the developing world.
