Dr Susi Dattenberg-Doyle

Queen of Gbi Kpoeta, Ghana

Dr Dattenberg-Doyle is founder and CEO of Right for Education, R:Ed Africa’s largest independent social media platform with a weekly reach of 10 million people in 45 countries....


​The platform is based on and incorporates my previous experience

As a psychologist I learned the need to listen, communicate and involve. Social change for good can only be achieved if arguments are succinct, relate and are accessible to all.

As a management consultant I learned the need to set goals and standards; review values and organise information in a structured easy to reach and understand format.

Building and running schools in Ghana, a very challenging task. The easy part is to build the school but creating a school, a social environment and a culture which embraces learning in a community where parents are illiterate and very poor takes time. Last year the school won again best community school in the Hohoe district and I am very pleased the value set has been internalised by the people of Kpoeta

As queen of Kpoeta, it is a great honour and I hope is not just based on my commitment but more on the integrity and respect I have for the people of Kpoeta. So far, I have made one decree, forbidding marriage under 18 years of age. I am aware that this is also country law, but social change and implementation of law is executed by the kings and queens, through the help of the elders. The Ewe kings have now added their influence and made this an Ewe standard.

Right for Education R:Ed, Social media is ideal for scaling up, reaching out and encourage two way communication across the African continent. My professional training but also role in African society is essential and guides our activities and regular review. Currently we reach 10m people weekly in 45 African countries in English and French, original texts only.
