How does it work?
We connect refugees (our mentees) with local professionals (our mentors) in their adopted country to help develop their skills, grow their network and lay down roots in their chosen sector.
After the success of our pilot programmes in London and Munich we are growing our community across the UK.
In 8 online mentoring sessions, once a week, industry-specific knowledge is shared, and access to a new network of professionals is opened.
We are still at the beginning of our journey, supporting refugees from over 20 countries.
650+ Mentorship hours
30+ Professional areas
Upon completion of a mentorship programme, refugee participants will have achieved one or more of the following:
Completion of LinkedIn Profile and CV
Recommendation letter from their mentor
Establishing of first professional network in the country
Enhanced industry knowledge in their chosen sector
Certificate of participation and reference letter from Kimiyaa
