Royal Commonwealth Society
December 2015 - /
In recognition of my work; I was honoured with an Invitation conveyed by Dr Astrid Bonfield CBE, the Chief Executive of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, to become an Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society.
The Associate Fellowship has always been granted to those who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to promoting the values of the Commonwealth and working to improve the lives of Commonwealth citizens.
The Royal Commonwealth Society was founded in 1868 and received its Royal Charter in 1882.
In the latter part of the twentieth century, the RCS became a center for the exchange of ideas and provided a platform for a number of notable African leaders, including Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and Desmond Tutu.
Over the years, the role of the Society has evolved to meet the changing nature of the Commonwealth and the needs of its Supporters.
