Discover. Connect. Empower.
The Nawaya Network, under UNICEF’s Generation of Innovation Leaders, GIL, program, works with underprivileged youth by providing them with entrepreneurship training. Since the launch of the program in 2016, we have launched over 1,075 micro-business across Beirut, Mount Lebanon, and the South.
A mentoring relationship is one where a mentor shares his or her specialized experience and knowledge with a mentee in order to empower and motivate them. This relationship benefits the mentee by providing him or her with professional advice and strategies that will help them achieve their professional goals. An entrepreneur has no boss that they can turn to for direction, having a mentor can help provide them with a new perspective that they can learn from.
Nawaya runs two types of mentoring:
Group Townhall Sessions:
