Open University Garden of Remembrance

BY David Doig Foundation ON 01/08/17

Members of the OPITO Executive and Board and Gillian Doig attended a very moving and emotional service for David at the Open University's Garden of Remembrance, London campus in June.  A plaque was unveiled to remember David and to acknowledge the positive impact he and OPITO have made to the lives of others through their support and commitment to the Open University's Global Education programmes.   They have helped to upskill hundreds of thousands of teachers across 10 countries in Africa, positively impacting not only their lives, but the lives of their pupils, helped over 1500 girls in Malawi qualify to enter Teacher Training College and trained over 1 million teachers across India via the Open University's teacher education project: TESS-India. The Open University's Vice-Chancellor, Peter Horrocks paid tribute to David by saying "We hope that this special spot, here in our Legacy Garden, will bear testament to an extraordinary man of vision and commitment.  An exceptional man, an alumnus, a donor and above all, a true friend.  David, you are missed but your legacy will continue to change lives".
