Matthew Lester

UK Trustee

Personal values: Keep it simple, trust those who have earned it, act with integrity

Core skills : Inquisitive, rigorous, logical

I am part of UWS because:

Education is the enabler to human progression and co existence. I have first hand experience of the transformation it can bring. The UWS model can rapidly establish and expand to provide basic education to those who have no such opportunity. By leveraging our skills for a period of time, large parts of uneducated communities can establish the core of an education system. I cannot think of a more motivational cause to pursue as a Trustee.
