Find out how we can help you to become a more effective change maker

Cultivating leadership for change

We offer mentoring to individuals in professional, community, issue-based and faith-based organizations. This enables you to develop an awareness of the particular skills or resources which could benefit your work.

We work flexibly to meet the needs of your organization. We can offer you specialist help where appropriate or direct you to other possible sources of advice and support.
To realize the goal of cultivating leaders and change makers, we have established a mentorship programme where emerging leaders are paired with seasoned professionals who embody Freirean principles. For individuals we help them:

Build critical understanding: Explore personal experiences, values, and beliefs within the wider social context.

Develop transformational leadership skills: Trust building, motivating people into action and leading through dynamics of complexity.

Establishing network of change makers: Join other like-minded peers in working for change.
