AKAD Mentorship Model

Theory suggests that low aspirations - caused by poverty, lack of access and knowledge - are an obstacle to long-term upward mobility - even when resources such as cash grants are given (E. Duflo, P. Dupas & M. Kremer, 2012)

Aspirations can be shaped through social interactions with successful peers and members of one’s community. Learning about positive experiences of others in the community help change aspirations and, in turn, induce greater investments in education and income generating activities.

This simple intervention significantly improves the performance of students, whether they are too or under-performing students. These see the vision of success in careers they dream of, with knowledge on how to achieve this. The simple result is increasing current student learning and academic excellence

Mentorship is done in partnership with volunteers and organisations that share our vision, mission and goals. Mentees gain by boosting their self-esteem, confidence and desire to excel as well as learn valuable lessons on life-skills, careers, positive attitude and avoidance of social evils such as drug abuse, immorality and risky behaviours.

Our Value Addition to youth;

  1. Self discovery – students first need to know themselves; their gifts, abilities, learning styles, dreams, goals and vision
  2. Identify possible careers – based on knowing themselves
  3. Prepare for their careers – based on post secondary institutions, such as universities
  4. Plot your educational journey – setting of goals, timelines for short, medium and long term goals
  5. Establish a career path – based on current & emerging challenges in the job and careers market locally and overseas    
  6. Lifeskills for success
