Message from CEO of Merck Foundation, Senator Rasha Kelej, on the launch of “90 minutes with Merck Foundation CEO”, a new reporting and engagement tool for programs


View French | Portuguese Version



Many of our stakeholders, alumni, and media members asked me to start regular live streams on social media so they can ask me questions about our programs and their huge impacts and about myself as an African woman who became one of the Most Influential in the world. Therefore I decided to start this reporting tool to be able to engage with them through series of Livestream meetings for 90 minutes on a monthly basis.


These live streams will provide me an opportunity to interact directly with Media Representatives from all African countries in addition to our Merck Foundation Alumni who have been actively contributing to Merck Foundation’s objectives. I invite all of you to be a part of this tool.


Moreover, I will be happy to share with you all information related to my likes, dislikes, hobbies, personality, education, early life, career life, professional progress, challenges, and success stories, in addition to our vision and future plans in order to achieve the objectives of Merck Foundation, as well as my personal goals. I hope my journey and experiences on how I overcame the challenges and achieved Merck Foundation objectives and my dreams, will be beneficial for many of you


It will be an honor for me to share my achievements and insights that will motivate the African youth and women and help them overcome challenges and break the glass ceiling during their career journey


This will be live-streamed on Merck Foundation Facebook page and Senator, Dr. Rasha Kelej Facebook page. Stay tuned!


Date: Wednesday, 13th October 2021


Time: 13:00 h – 14:30 h (GST)
