“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”
Equip a Woman Foundation believes strongly in the concept of mentorship. We believe that in order to succeed, one needs a support system to encourage, inspire and equip them to navigate the challenges that being a woman comes with. There is no need to reinvent the wheel; women do not have to go through the same struggles alone, instead they can stand on the shoulders of the giants that have gone ahead and overcome these struggles, and see further than either of them could have ever imagined.
Equip a Woman Foundation believes in the need for role models to foster self-confidence, self-awareness, and develop life skills. We believe that women that are supported will in turn help others when given the chance. We are passionate about equipping women with the tools to build themselves up, believing that they are the key to developing wholesome communities.
Equip A Woman Foundation is seeking women that are willing to mentor other women across areas of life. This would include, but is not limited to business, spiritual, and life coaching. As an organisation founded on Christianity, it is essential for the mentors to be God-fearing women that are interested in supporting other women. This would mostly require a time commitment- taking the time to speak to and listen to the mentee, and also praying for your mentee- her business/academics/family and her overall success.
No woman should have to walk this road alone. You can help by sharing your time and experiences with someone else. No matter what you do, someone can learn from you. It is a very fulfilling experience. To know that your mentee is doing better, and achieving more than they would have achieved without you. Perhaps you feel you need someone to invest this in you, rather than the other way round, this programme is for you as well. In fact it was created mainly for you. Get in touch with us, and we will be glad to link you up with someone who is ready to work with you. If you are interested in joining our team of mentors, or know someone who would be interested in assisting the women that Equip A Woman Foundation supports, please send us and email and we will send you an application form and answer any questions you might have.
