MENTORTHON-2018

ELGEYO MARAKWET COUNTY EDITION

Why get involved?


Mentorthon is an annual countrywide call for professionals, corporates, entrepreneurs and leaders to give 42 hours to mentor high school students. Mentorthon brings together students to learn self-belief and self control from the stories of the leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals and brands.

 

1 in 3 young people will grow without a mentor (Mentor 2016). Daily Nation reported increase in teenage sex with over 23% of girls under 18 years falling pregnant, 55% of all high school students having tried drugs and alcohol, and well over 300 out of 5,000 schools experiencing massive strikes contributing to a high dropout rate. Kenya Vision 2030 considers that one of the biggest challenges in education lies in improving overall transition rates, particularly from secondary to tertiary levels currently at 3% and also changing attitudes and behaviour of students.

 

Aside from all these benefits, mentorship opportunities offer an opening for professionals and corporates to Pay Forward, to the next generation, the lessons we have learnt on our journey in life.

 

'In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.'- Albert Schweitzer
