Who we are

The Mentors Network is an Ashesi student-led initiative aimed at inspiring, mentoring, and developing students in rural community schools to improve school attendance, academic performance and unleash potentials.
From rigorous research and our personal experiences living and schooling in rural communities, we have noticed many students in several rural community schools do not attend school regularly, often perform poorly in academics, and lack the confidence to pursue their dreams. In the end, such people with great potentials end up on the street or settle for menial jobs for survival. Therefore, our ultimate aim is to provide to transform these young people into agents of change through direct mentoring, inspiration, and exposure to opportunities.
We do this with the support of the Ford Foundation’s Fund for Service to Children through Ashesi University of which are we a two-time winner!

Our Impact

Started in the later part of the Fall semester in 2013, seminars by this initiative has inspired over 3,000 students in over 9 rural community partnered schools. We have donated over 30 core subjects textbooks to schools and over 200 exercise books with other learning materials to aid teaching and learning.
For mentorship, we have mentored over 70 students via our one-on-one mentoring model within our parterend schools. Over 40 parents and 25 teachers have been directly involved in work with students.
