Engender Youth Mentorship is a legally registered non-profit organization, established in 2019 that engages the girl-child in interactive learning and skilling experiences designed to discover their self-worth and develop strong leadership skills to support them thrive as the world’s next ‘Thought Leaders'.

Engender Youth Mentorship is Christian founded and its learnings are based on biblical principles. Engender executes a series of actions that prepare girls categorized in age groups of 7 to 17 years, 18+ years and teenage mothers to shape them towards positively experiencing the challenges of adolescence and young adulthood respectively through coordinated, progressive series of high-quality activities and learning experiences that help them to achieve social, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being.
Engender Mentorship Program focuses on activities geared towards 'Thought Development' through building self-worth and awareness among girls and supporting them to shift from the typical paradigm whilst emphasizing teachings about womanhood amidst an evolutional world that harbors challenges of increased 'millennial' traits such negative exposure to digital age notions, laziness, 'slay queens' concepts, disobedience, disrespect to mention but a few.

We believe that the Engender Girls' will thrive with respect, etiquette, confidence and love for God and education based on what is on the inside thus making them self-aware that they are B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. (Brave, Energetic, Assertive, Unique, Tenacious, Important, Fabulous, Unequaled and Loved) and need no one's justification.
As part of our model to manage age-appropriate information, the young ladies are divided into groups according to age and grade levels. Engender Girls Mentorship will help your daughter to: -

  • Appreciate their worth in life!
  • Make decisions and set goals, keep motivated and focused on her goals.
  • Improve in school.
  • Nurture her confidence and self‐esteem.
  • Listen and solve her problems in life.
  • Introduce her to worthwhile ideas, activities, and opportunities.
  • Prepare her to explore career possibilities.
  • Meet successful people through the one-on-one mentorships – this is for the 18+ year old girls whom we attach to a successful woman within the same line of their career interest.

Engender Youth Mentorship also empowers rural women below the international youth age of 35 with skills to make a living such as agriculture, tailoring, making reusable sanitary pads etc. for income generation whilst supporting them towards building resilient households. Currently running in the Eastern Districts of Uganda.
