The mentoring journey was truly enriching, providing me with the invaluable opportunity to rediscover facets of myself that I had previously overlooked. This experience not only allowed me to embrace and appreciate those aspect but also served as a catalyst for unlocking my creative potential. Through thoughtful guidance, I was able to channel my energies towards the goals that truly resonate with my core values, that fostered personal growth and a sense of purpose.

I couldn’t be prouder if it was not for the mentorship from PDAid Foundation. The mentorship taught me to be the best version of myself. I cannot express how lucky I feel to be a mentee. My mentor was great full of wisdom and knowledge that had a great impact on my life. The mentorship instilled me with confidence and strengthened the skills I already had. Thank you, PDAid Foundation. Huge respect for you.

“I just wanted to express my appreciation for your guidance and support. Your mentorship has been incredibly helpful in helping me develop my skills both professionally and personally. Saying ‘thank you’ is not enough for me to express how grateful I am for your support over the months.“

This is a note of appreciation to my mentor for taking the time out of her busy day and helping me reach my goals. Without her guidance and advice, I would have been indeed at odds. Thanks for being an incredible mentor as well. This mentor opportunity has lightened my mind and my life in general. My mentor taught me a lot of things which I never thought I could learn all in school. She lights my future! Thank you to the PDAid Foundation for this mentor programme.

I would like to thank the PDAid foundation for the mentorship programme. I have really gotten to know more about myself. I have gotten to know my strengths and my weakness and also to always give gratitude to all things, however big or small they are. The mentorship programme was really good, and I was able to share my stories with my mentor and she always understood me. Thank you so much.

I take this golden opportunity to thank the PDAid foundation for the great opportunity they have offered me. The experience was very amazing. It was a very enjoyable session for me as a mentee and for my mentor. I learnt so many things I didn't know there before, may the almighty God bless you as an organization and all those who were involved in the process. I am super grateful for everything once again. Thank you.

2022-2023 mentee group

During 2022-2023, the PDAid Foundation had two youth in the mentoring programme. Please meet them below and read about their experiences with the PDAid Foundation mentoring programme.

James Gathungu

First of all, I want to thank God for making a foundation like the PDAid Foundation and helping young youths. I thank the PDAid Foundation for granting me to get my life replaced.

I’m taking this opportunity to thank you all for being there for me, despite of petty challenges I was going through. I can honestly say that I would not have been even close to where I’m today without the encouragement and advice – and if my mentor had not listened to me. I have a high perception of myself.

I’m lucky enough to have been on both sides of the mentoring program. As a mentee, I’ve received invaluable insights into all aspects of work and life. I really appreciate your help. Thanks to the PDAid Foundation for the mentoring program.

What I love most about the mentoring program is that it gave me a sense of purpose in life.

After every meeting, it gave me positive energy and strength to go out the world and push through and make myself a better person for everyone around me.

It also helped me discover more about myself and how to live with people around me and create good relationship.
