Katuka helps build careers

YA-Katuka2YA-katuka1The Katuka Mentorship Programme, which aims to empower and encourage entrepreneurs, held its first training session for 2012 this week. Fifteen new mentees (right) formally joined the programme on Wednesday under the guidance of seasoned trainer, Sabina Ruegg. The young women will be guided and mentored throughout the year by their designated mentors (left) on how they can climb the corporate ladder and eventually start their own businesses. The Katuka Mentorship Programme was started in 2001 by the late Lena Markus, then Businesswoman of the Year. The programme has trained more than 200 women since its inception. It is sponsored by Telecom Namibia and by Namibia Economist. (Photographs by Yvonne Amukwaya)
