UNIVERSITY MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
One Girl Can’s annual conference in Nairobi brings together all our university scholarship recipients from across Kenya for two days of essential empowerment skills.
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 Kenya business women 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 4 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 help 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 to execute the plan everyday 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.
