Could you help other women develop their confidence and gain more independence? Would you like to volunteer to work on a 1-1 basis and make a difference to someone’s life? Could you help someone take steps towards employment or self-employment? Are you willing to share your experience of the world of work with other women?

Laamiga is a voluntary organisation run by women for women. Laamiga means “pathway” and helps women find new directions.  Many women from migrant and refugee backgrounds have a wide range of skills and are very resilient despite facing issues like low income, lone parenthood, and discrimination in employment.  Mentors can help them find new ways to use their talents, skills and knowledge in satisfying work, and help them take the firs steps towards employment or setting up their own business.

HOW IT WORKS

Our mentors come from many walks of life and all kinds of backgrounds and can live anywhere in London. You will be matched with a mentee recruited from the local community in Camden and Islington.  You will get training and support from our coordinator. After a short introductory workshop with other mentors, she will support you and keep in regular telephone contact with you and your mentee all the way.

NEXT STEPS

Think whether you can spare a couple of hours a month for a year to explore dreams, develop options, identify actions and review progress with a mentee. Contact our coordinator to help you decide whether mentoring is the right thing for you. She will match you with a mentee and invite you to an introductory workshop. You’ ‘ll agree to meet at a place that suits you and your mentee. In the first meeting, you’ ll discuss what you both hope to achieve and agree some broad goals.
