In the late 1960s at Oxford University. Keith Lloyd was at Linacre College, which was gender neutral with some 50% of the students from non-UK countries. Prof. Hagan was at Linacre at the same time and little did we know that we would meet again some 40 years later! The Linacre experience left them both with a profound sense of the value of education in future advancement of society. Almost 20 years ago, Keith and his wife, Marjorie, with the help of the UK government through the DFID scheme created a series of Scholarships (Norman & Ivy LLOYD and LLOYD Scholars) for very bright, financially needy African students to pursue one year Masters studies in subjects which would enhance the social and economic development of their countries of origin. Since then we have some 30 to 40 successful “sons and daughters ” who are back in Africa making significant contributions to their communities.
