"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
Women Mentor Association is a Mentoring program that aims to inspire women & men to reach out to other women and men, through the simple act of offering guidance and insight, help them achieve their personal and professional aspirations. Many people in developing and emerging markets have the ideas and ambition to become successful entrepreneurs but are held back by barriers such as lack of access to business skills, technology, networks and finance. In response, we have developed an innovative solution that combines mentoring with technology to offer cross-border support to women & men entrepreneurs. We match our mentee's with male and female mentors. Using our online platform, they spend working one-on-one to achieve key business goals. Participants build their business skills and digital literacy through our trainings and workshops, and become part of a global community of committed, ambitious entrepreneurs who are invested in each other’s success.The program boosts confidence, improves business performance and ultimately creates wealth for the entrepreneurs we support.
“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction”— John Crosby
“Our mentors and business partners are creating a community of caring, focused entrepreneurs who will strengthen our future and our economy. Together, we empower entrepreneurs to reach personal success.” ~Nadia Aimé
To accomplish our mission, we believe that we must be responsive to the needs of everyone who receives our services. We implement and improve programs using information and input from our stakeholders: mentees, mentors, volunteers, educators, funders, board, and staff. We value people of all backgrounds irrespective of their gender, race, ethnic origin, disability, age, nationality, national origin, sexuality, religion, belief, marital status, or social class. We foster an environment of respect, openness, learning, integrity, and honesty. Our commitment to inclusiveness is evident in our organizational policies, procedures, and strategic plan.
“If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped”— Melinda Gates
We are here to help you succeed and enjoy your journey. Here are the kind of things you will find going on here:
The Women Mentor Association Programs & Workshops are made possible through collaboration with partner organisations and the support of individuals, private sector partners, trusts, institutions, foundations and others who give us their precious time, expertise and funding to ensure that we can continue our work. Without the help of our committed donors, partners, mentors and team & volunteers we could not reach as many entrepreneurs as we do. We are always seeking to build relationships with organisations that share the aims and values of Women Mentor Association.
