Cherie Blair Foundation Seeks Mentors for Entrepreneurs in the Developing World

Posted By Page Schindler Buchanan, Thursday, January 17, 2013

This morning we received this request for mentors from the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, a fantastic organization helping entrepreneurs in the developing world through international mentoring.

Many women across Africa, South Asia and the Middle East have the ideas and ambition needed to become successful entrepreneurs, but are held back by barriers such as lack of access to business skills, technology, networks, and finance. By combining mentoring with technology, the Cherie Blair Foundation is pioneering a new way of supporting women entrepreneurs through its Mentoring Women in Business Programme where a mentee will work with her mentor to help take her business, confidence, and skills to the next level.

The Foundation is looking for male and female entrepreneurs and professionals from a range of fields to support these women by becoming mentors. All of the mentoring is done online using a platform designed specially by Google, which allows for great flexibility and networking. It only takes 2 hours a month and is a learning and growth opportunity for mentees and mentors alike.

Apply by the 10th of February to lend your support to a woman entrepreneur and join the next group of mentors in this distinctive programme. At the beginning of March, you could find yourself working with a beekeeper in Uganda, a seed business owner in Kenya, a psychologist in India, a social entrepreneur in China, or a cake decorator in Malaysia!
