Female mentors needed!!!

Street to School Initiative needs passionate young professionals 
who would love to impact young girls living in rural communities. 
Mentors would be expected to keep in touch with their mentees 
via e-mentoring (mails, Skype), phone calls or physical visitations
 to girls at home or school. They need mentors to inspire young 
girls to greatness and a purpose-driven life. It is a very 
flexible program but well structured such that mentors are 
expected to keep in touch with their mentees at least three 
times in a week. According to Tosin Taiwo, founder of the 
initiative and winner US Consul General Award 2013, 
“Rural community girls are peculiar. They need our mentorship to 
prevent introduction into early marriages, early pregnancies, 
dropping out of school etc.” 
To be a Street to School Initiative mentor, register here.

 Do you reside in Delta State or Abuja? Are you a female with 
a strong passion for ICT? Can you learn how to build mobile
applications to be able to mentor a Technovation Challenge Team? 
If your answers are all yes, then attend Women in Technology in 
Nigeria (WITIN) hackdays at Delta State on February 1 or Abuja 
on February 9. The Technovation Challenge is an after-school 
program mentorship program, which gives high-school girls hands-on 
experience with engineering and high-tech entrepreneurship. 
Through Technovation, young women from all over the world identify 
and solve problems in their local communities by developing mobile 
app prototypes and business plans. WITIN will lead mentors in 
Nigeria who would guide teachers to train teams on how to build 
the apps. The training culminates in a global competition where 
teams compete for funding to launch their company and take their 
apps to market. Register for the hackdays here.
