Hi Rudolph, most welcome, karibu sana! What is your  wiki - ID? (you know among us wikipedia people we often like to snoop a bit and see how the other one has edited, on what topics etc - to which our software  luckily gives us the opportunity to be curious a bit)

Cheers - Kipala from swwiki

Thanks, Jack for the warm introduction.

Hello everyone.

It is wonderful to e-meet you all. As Jack mentioned, I am focused on
implementing a partnerships strategy in the Sub-Saharan African region that
will grow our movement and support the wonderful work you are all doing.

I look forward to connecting with each of you individually to learn about
all the work you have and continue to do. I hope to understand from your
perspective, the partnership needs of the movement and how we work together
to grow our footprint as well as the participation of Africans in the free
knowledge movement (readers, contributors, and advisors).

Feel free to connect over email. Let's set up some time to talk.

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all well.

I am so happy to introduce Rudolph Ampofo, who has joined the Wikimedia
Foundation Partnership's team as our new Sub-Saharan Africa
Partnerships Manager.

For the past four years, I have been managing our partnerships across
the two regions of the Middle East and Africa, and I am excited to work
alongside Rudolph to ensure a smooth transition as he takes over our
Sub-Saharan Africa partnerships. I will now be focusing more on building
and maintaining partnerships across the MENA (Middle East North Africa)

Here is some information about Rudolph:

*Rudolph is passionate about impacting lives in rural and marginalized
communities in Africa. He has degrees in Human Resources and Law. After
working with a local HR and management consulting firm, he set up his first
business, a center-based program for children with Autism and other related
disorders (ASD). They have impacted over 100 children with ASD in Kumasi,
Ghana. *

*He later set up Craft Education, which supported Eneza expansion into
West Africa (Ghana & Ivory Coast) and has impacted over 40,000 learners in
rural and marginalized communities via text messaging e-learning platform.
Rudolph also contributed at the strategic level helping Eneza win awards
from GSMA and MIT Solve. Currently, Craft Education is exploring how to use
technology to change access to healthcare, service providers and education
for individuals with ASD in Africa (this is his passion project!). Rudolph
is also excited about work that challenges the equilibrium and changes
lives for the better. He turns into a geek and his eyes light up! He loves
manga and martial arts (former practitioner of TKD and Karate…he is
planning on picking it up again). Husband, learning to cook, likes nice
things, a tech enthusiast (self-taught front-end development and loves
product management). FYI, he really cares about the borders on the excel
sheet! (you would think it’s the world cup).*

Rudolph is based in Accra, Ghana and is working on implementing a
partnerships strategy for Sub-Saharan Africa, with a special focus on
increasing usage, access, and awareness of Wikimedia projects, as well as
the availability of locally relevant content.

Feel free to reach out and welcome Rudolph!

Many thanks,
