Mentorship program

Breaking barriers with education and technology

What do we want to achieve?

We want to use technology to break down barriers. We want to give talented and motivated individuals in difficult environments (e.g. refugee camps) access to skills that create opportunity. This includes connecting them with young professionals and leaders who seek to apply their experiences in a way that creates a positive impact on the life of others.

Through our mentorship program, we connect selected individuals with clear goals for their professional and personal development with other individuals capable of helping them achieve these goals.
