Dr. Susann Dattenberg-Doyle earned her doctorate in Psychology in 1988 at the University of Heidelberg. Susi is an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a member of the American Psychological Association. In 2004 she established the ‘School for Ghana Programme’ and built the first school in Kpoeta. The school continues to thrive and provide education for over 1000 pupils. In 2006, Susi was crowned Mama Ngoryisi Dziwornu I, Queen of Gbi. Kpoeta, Upper Volta, Ghana.
Susi believes that, by giving people access to education, you give them the power to help themselves. It was for this reason that, in 2014, she founded “Right For Education”. R:Ed is a N.G.O registered in Ghana with the sole purpose of inspiring social change and improving lives through education. Susi is determined that R:Ed remains independent, and therefore the organisation does not accept monetary donations. Instead, it relies on professionals, academics and students from all over the world to contribute their knowledge, expertise and insight. R:Ed now publishes weekely articles, promoting health, education and African culture in over 30 countries in Sub-Sahara Africa.
Susi returns to Ghana every year to visit her region and attend the African King and Queens’ Conference. She is married and has three loving children. Her daughter Imme Dattenberg-Doyle will inherit her title.
