Update about contacts for members, organizations, potential Regional Coordinators in Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Hours were dedicated this week to compiling a list and formulating a draft of an email to send to Universities across all three nations. I've researched Universities, literally, from A to Z (Agostinho Neto University, a large public university in Angola to Zimbabwe Open University in Zimbabwe.)
One of the most difficult tasks though, was to find Student Organizations at these Universities that could become member bases in these nations and hopefully provide us with hard working Regional Coordinators. Another barrier I hit was language. Many of these University websites are not only not well developed, but are also in different languages, such as Portuguese!
That, however, did not stop me! I muddled my way through these websites and have complied a rather lengthy list of contacts that will soon be receiving an email from UCP-SARnet regarding our organization, it's work and their potential role. Hopefully this endeavour bears fruit in the end.
