SODEI mentoring program was created to encourage personal and professional development through knowledge, expertise and experience sharing. SODEI recognizes that the knowledge and skills gaps that exist in Cameroon can be closed quicker and cost-effectively through mentoring. Also, there is a popular misconception amongst Cameroonians that if useful information is widely shared, many other members of the society will benefit from it hence limiting the informer’s chances of progress. The youth mentoring and leadership program will teach young people not only to identify and make use of but create opportunities for themselves. The program is designed to bring together a pool of professionals, businesspersons and experts (mentors) and match them with a pool of mentees with emerging talents. The mentoring relationship is built on mutual trust, respect and communication, and involves both parties meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss progress and set goals for further development.
