“To see these scholars grow and develop, to be able to influence someone positively is just amazing.”

— Jackie Kitulu, Akili Dada mentor

Our Mentorship program is a dynamic network of diverse women through which we are creating links within and across generations of women. The mentors are committed Kenyan women who while they come from diverse career backgrounds, what they do have in common is that they are ready to give back to the society; Akili Dada connects these women with our brilliant pool of scholars , alumnae and fellows to mentor and nurture the next generation to leadership.

You can get involved in Akili Dada by committing to any of our programs and mentor our scholars, fellows and alumnae.

  • Access to a network of like-minded professional women who are working in Kenya
  • Access to exclusive job and fellowship announcements from around the world that are carefully se lected to fit our mentor profiles
  • Exclusive mentor-only events designed to enrich on both a personal and professional level

Our mentor-only workshops, speakers, and networking events will empower you to take your life and career to the next level!
