The Public Engagement and Advocacy Advisor for World University Service of Canada, Mrs. Juliana Ohenewaa Amoako Twum, has disclosed that about 1,126 mentees have successfully undergone the 3 month piloted mentorship program.

She made the disclosure during a feedback session held at the Fiesta Royale Hotel in Accra.

The So Me Mu Mentorship, one of the INVEST campaigns aims at creating a platform that promotes growth and development for both mentors and mentees to thrive in high-growth sectors, mainly male-dominated.

Launched last year, the project is projected to connect 2,000 mentees to about 200 mentors by the end of the project in March 2025, which will see the entire project come to a close.

During a feedback session to evaluate the project’s performance since its launch, mentors, mentees, and heads of institutions from partner institutions in the three regions where the project is being implemented were convened.

The three groups were divided into sub-groups to work independently and share their experiences and challenges, which will inform the board on the way forward with the mentorship program.

Speaking on the successes of the ‘So Me Mu’ project, Mrs. Amoako Twum highlighted some students who have gained meaningful jobs through the mentorship program and other benefits.

Additionally, network building has deepened the understanding of students who connected with their mentors, opening up other avenues for mentees and mentors alike, as mentors have also learned from their mentees in various ways.
