    • One of the greatest challenges facing the world today is poverty, and this affects not just financial standing, but also aspiration. While the developed world deals with the consequences of the serious economic slowdown, the impact upon developing countries and their communities is that they can no longer rely on aid for assistance.

  • 9. Excellent feedback from Mentors who have undertaken the programme “ I want to thank you all for what was an amazing week.  The combination of being in such a different location, the interaction between us all and the mentees who joined us added up to a fantastic experience – and I feel too it will take some time to really assess the full impact upon me.” “ Last week was incredible. That’s all I seem to say to people...it was incredible.” “ Has anyone ever asked you to mentor them? It is a humbling experience: it makes you re-evaluate your own assumptions and prejudices. Imagine being asked to mentor someone in a foreign country with different customers and pressures? Just before you dismiss this out of hand the experience will be life changing. I have just returned from Jordan where I had the most amazing time. My mentee is a Palestinian named Amjad, who is setting up a business to sell language courses on mobile phones. He believes the Mowgli programme to be incredibly important in helping him achieve his objectives .
  • 10. Mowgli have had some great press ‘ mentoring is a great leadership development tool for directors and employees, which also has the potential to boost morale and job satisfaction – and change lives’. July 2009 ‘ mentoring is a key part of leadership development…mentors come back to the UK having learned something about how to conduct business in a different way. There are lessons to be learned from both sides. They return to their business with that new perspective to help address some of the problems we’re facing in this country’. July / August 2009 ‘ employers moved to action by the plight of the world’s poor, as highlighted in the film Slumdog Millionaire, and who want to develop employees’ leadership skills can do both through a new mentoring foundation…Mowgli’ March / April 2009
