Apprentice programme empowers women

LK-front-pageCurrently in its 10th year, the Katuka Mentorship Programme has produced significant results in the careers of the participating mentees. Since its launch in 2001, by the late Lena Markus, former Economist Businesswomen of the Year 2000, 194 mentees have completed the programme which aims to empower and encourage entrepreneurs, business and professional women to achieve success in their careers through mentorship by other more experienced business and professional women. This week, 19 mentees and mentors were awarded recognition certificates for their contribution, progress and successful completion of the mentorship programme for 2011 and another 28 were introduced to participate in the programme for 2012.
