Meet Felix Botchway- Client Partner from RAHE-Ghana
Felix Botchwey found the BUSPH Program Design Course on collaborate.health.bu.edu. Using the “contact us” link on the website he introduced himself and his idea for a new project for RAHE-Ghana. Several Zoom and WhatsApp calls later he produced a challenging scope of work for the graduate consulting team in the Program Design Course. In May, the student team worked under the direction of Felix to design a project to address the barriers that adolescent girls face in Ghana to managing their menstrual cycles.
Felix has 11 years of experience in the nonprofit sector and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated Business Studies from the University for Development Studies in Ghana. Currently, he is the Programs Coordinator for RAHE GHANA, where he supervises and evaluates the implementation of projects and programs of the organization including community advocacy programs on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To sustain organizational projects and programs beyond its formal implementation timeframes, he focuses on building the capacity of stakeholders through community-based workshops, focus group discussions and collaborative trainings. At these fora, he deploys Teaching and Learning Materials (graphical images) and comprehensive PowerPoint presentations that easily articulates the purpose of relevant discussions and stimulates diverse ideas from participants.
Prior to joining RAHE GHANA, he worked for International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Directorate of Research Innovation and Consultancy (DRIC), USAID Ghana where as field consultant to collect data from farmers and for World reader where he championed digital reading in underserved communities to create a world where everyone could read.
