Papa Kojo Botsio (preferred name Pako) is a DPhil candidate from Ghana researching Education and Welfare Policies with an objective to widen access to secondary and higher education for vulnerable students. Pako has led unprecedented initiatives including the first-ever African Choir at Oxford as well as mentoring students through the Scholarship and Access team. Pako also launched an independent funding campaign for African students including meeting with 15 major administrative and financial heads of the University of Oxford (such as the Vice-Chancellor) advocating for the urgent resolution of diversity disparities at the University especially under-representation of African students. As President of AfriSoc, Pako worked collaboratively with AfriSoci members, affiliates and partners to advance a unified African Development Agenda through open discussions, alumni engagement, scholarship and access efforts, cultural celebrations, and AfriSoc’s flagship annual conference. He also initiated the African Oxons Project, aimed at collecting archival data on Africans from the continent and the Diaspora who have completed their studies at the University of Oxford. This project will also celebrate the achievements, lives, and legacies of AfriSoc members and students of the University who hail from the continent and her Diaspora.
