we (source humanitarian network) are an NGO operating a computer centre in the refugee city Kakuma, Kenya. Kakuma is home to 200 000 refugees primarily from Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia. The computer centre provides education for about 200 students per month. Courses include programming and marketing, as well as life philosophy and female empowerment.Starting next year we will give a 6 month course on web development, including HTML/CSS/JS, react.js, databases, developing an own small app. First 8 weeks will be covering this online course https://frontendmasters.com/courses/web-development-v2/.
Student have basic IT-knowledge, but would heavily benefit from a kinda experienced (1+ year professional work or analogous) mentor, who invests 2-4 hours per week looking through their code, explaining concepts, reassuring them in their learning path, etc.
If you have this kind of experience, are comfortable speaking in english (B2 level) and can commit yourself for 6 months, you could be a big help for a motivated student and naturally another piece of evidence that we can help each other even if we are thousands of kilometers away! So are you ready to take this challenge? We would need some basic information ( Age, Gender, Nationality, Languages (and respective proficiency levels), Professional and educational background, any programming / tech skills) to find a good mentee match for you. You can write here or even better at [email protected] or https://source-network.org/mentorship-program/#mentorship-form. Of course we are also happy to answer any questions that arise and If you are interested, we would have a call and explain the general procedure in detail.Thank you for your time!

EDIT: Thank you for your amazing feedback. This post gained far more traction than we expected and more than 40 interested and highly qualified mentors reached out to us! We will reach out to you guys in the next days!
Changed the EDIT to rephrase: Due to a limited number of mentees, we can't guarantee that everyone will be able to participate, However, feel free to sign up and we can keep you in consideration for later rounds if we can't involve you in this one!
Ok so since Day 1 I have disliked Kenya but now I can't even finish season 11 reunion because she's not accountable for anything! Even the dissolution of her marriage...I genuinely am sorry that her and Marc separated but to me it's the last nail in the coffin. Are there any redeeming qualities in this woman?
I was raised in an abusive home and I seriously feel nauseous now when I see kenya. I'm sorry but I think she's a terrible person. This is only s11 events, but here are triggers:
doesn't take any ownership of words, behavior
expects ppl to treat her in a very specific, submissive way
no matter what one does she will point out how you did it wrong. Ex: "no what you should have done is xyz!". Sometimes that makes sense, but it is literally every time for her.
stirs up mad rumors when no one asked
cutting people down for "fake businesses", ex: Cynthia her "bestie" not knowing wine
completely disregards Nene when she tries to make peace
when ppl apologize to her she still doesn't apologize
when she's called out for telling the women they'll get their karma, then she herself gets a divorce, Kenya says that the women talked shit about her first (impossible bc she only just got married), and she refuses to discuss the past "bc it's not relevant"
she says "kids are off limits" (re: buffalo baby comment) then IMMEDIATELY ridicules how much Nene's kids look like her.
She insinuates Nenes kids are ugly then shuts down, only saying "I'm flawless" to herself. (Who does that??)
and what I HATE is she constantly laughs in people's faces! Does that not trigger you?
Sorry for the essay/rant--I had to purge!
