UNIVERSITY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

One Girl Can’s university mentorship program includes the annual leadership conference in Nairobi that brings together all our university scholarship recipients from across Kenya for two days of essential empowerment training.

At the conference, the girls continue to develop their vision and goals alongside their peers. Girls gain confidence in public speaking, professional etiquette, handling their schedules and finances, and planning for their future careers.

Keynote speeches and workshops by successful Kenyan businesswomen inspire the girls to dream big whilst giving them practical advice and connecting them to their networks through internships and job opportunities.

In the past, we’ve had organizations like Deloitte and KPMG facilitate customized workshops to teach our students how to write a resume, where to look for work, and how to show up for an interview and win the job.

After four years in university, the girls will be better educated, more marketable, more mature, and confident but there’s no guarantee that they’ll be able to earn an income just on the basis of those attributes alone. One Girl Can is dedicated to helping girls achieve a good income to live full, independent lives.

Through coaching and mentoring, we help these girls realize that an alternative future can be theirs. We teach them how to create a vision for the life they want to live, how to develop a plan to achieve this, and how to execute the plan every day to begin moving their lives forward.

Our first conference had 15 attendees in 2015 and at our next conference, we’re expecting over 250 students.

In 2021, we announced the partner with UBC Sauder to launch the Entrepreneurial Training Academy.

Entrepreneurship training is crucial to decreasing Kenya’s unemployment rate. The World Bank reports that it is one of the greatest sources of new jobs.

This innovative training is a customized program that teaches high school and university students the rudiments of creating small-scale business ventures. Learn more >
