Mentors Bond So Well With Their Mentee

It was her first time. Her first time to be on video call, chatting so excitedly with her mentor who is in faraway, Denmark while she lives in Lagos, Nigeria.

Praise, as she is fondly called is an High School student in one of the target rural schools where Street2School Initiative coordinates a 6-month mentoring program tagged PROJECT25 for girls in rural high schools. And, for the past four months, some 25 High School Girls in rural communities have been paired with 25Mentors across the globe. Young girls, who despite the challenges they face each day to staying in school still have some great future ambitions. They want to be accountant, medical personnels, bankers etc.

As an organization, our sole aim is to support the education programs of disadvantaged young people, especially the girl child. And, aside education sponsorship programs, we coordinate an annual youth mentoring scheme and empowerment schemes for vulnerable women and mothers of children whom we sponsor..

Today, Praise like other girls have been paired with amazing individuals who have volunteered to mentor, direct and be a 'BIG' Sister. They have bonded so well with their mentors through a scheduled weekly e-mentoring at our Resource Centre.

As the Women History Month ends, our shout out goes to every BIG sister we have got ourselves! Thank you for sharing, caring and volunteering. Thank you for being our Mentor.

....Mentor A Child, Touch A Life. ♥ ♥
