About the talk “The Cascading Mentorship Model”

Angelina’s talk will focus on how the cascading mentorship model can help create an alternative means of income for young girls.

Kenyan schools have a high rate of girls dropping out due to various reasons, one major reason being teenage pregnancies. By finding partners or “sponsors” many young girls find themselves needing to leave school due to early pregnancies. By creating a network platform for mentorship, it is possible to encourage young girls to stay in school and complete their education.

We will also look at how the cascading mentorship model can be applied in various fields of design. By creating a “Commons” platform, are we able to encourage the continued learning/growth of aspiring and veteran designers alike?
