Welcome to Mowgli Mentoring

Mowgli Mentoring is a social enterprise driving inclusive economic and social change in the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa. Mowgli’s unique, accredited methodology provides a supportive framework which empowers and supports the talent and leadership development of entrepreneurs (micro, refugee and SMEs), women, youth as well as corporate leaders and employees to unlock their potential and seize new opportunities for growth.

Over the past eleven years, Mowgli has worked with philanthropists, and local and international governmental and private sector partners to provide mentoring across 17 countries in the Middle East, North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and the UK. Having predominantly served the MENA region, we recently expanded our operations across Sub-Saharan Africa consequently increasing our focus to women and youth in addition to entrepreneurs and corporate employees as the beneficiaries of our programs. We have trained more than a thousand mentors who have supported entrepreneurs from all sectors. They create and safeguard jobs, producing a significant economic and social return on investment. 

Mowgli Mentoring’s methodology supports long-term professional and personal development. Our volunteer mentors are trained to listen, guide and inspire, they themselves testify as to how the mentoring process has supported their leadership development. We systematically match mentors with mentees, and provide structured support as they co-develop long-term, trust-based relationships. Our approach is a practical and sustainable way of developing human capital to the benefit of the whole community.

Mentoring is a vital and cost effective means of supporting sustainable development.  It is an essential component of human capital development as it provides a supportive framework within which entrepreneurs, corporate employees women and youth can set and achieve their goals.

“My advice though: It’s free, but the value is there for you- as much as mentor and mentees commit themselves too, you will get the value back that you put in.”

“Through understanding the value you can bring to another business, you see the value you bring to your own business more clearly.”
