0 Comment

"To support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be." (E. Parsloe, 1995)

This is a holistic mentoring programme that will assist young girls in Sudan develop their professional and interpersonal skills through discussions with their mentors and being a part of monthly workshops. The mentees on this programme will cover sessions such as CV writing, leadership skills as well as critical women’s rights issues, and many more. Mentors are involved in guiding and supporting mentees to be critical thinkers, and build their confidence in order to challenge the status quo and follow a path of their choosing. Mentees should play an active role in their learning and conduct research on the sessions in the programme in order to have engaging, thought provoking discussions with their mentors.
