Thanks to you, we have almost finished laying the foundation of the building of AAE's E-Coaching center in Ghana.We hope to keep the builders at work until the roofing stage. In order to get there, we must raise at least USD $2000 on or before October 9th, 2013. We could achieve this only with your valuable support.
Once again, I am asking you to spread the word to potential donors. Bring this up in conversation with friends and family and ask if they could give as little as $10 to the AAE project. Every little bit counts!
GOOD NEWS! Donations would be matched at 30% on Oct. 9th by Global Giving.
A Million Thanks!
We're so excited about our performance so far!
Thank you for joining June's top Awareness Raiser, Sachidanand Sahoo to raise USD$90 for the AAE E-Coaching Center project!
A BIG thank you to you all for giving time and money to this GREAT CAUSE and informing people about the AAE initiative.
Our Target for August is USD$1,500.
Join hands as we start breaking grounds to lay the first foundations of AAE's E-Coaching Center in Ghana - a greatly needed infrastructure to educate and enrich this lives of young Africans.
Won't you like to contribute to this?We can achieve this if you ask five new people YOU know to donate at least $10 each week!
Thank YOU for joining the AAE Campaign!!
The AAE E-Coaching Center Project needs your help to stay alive!
E-Coaching is an innovative way of regenerating the workforce by way of providing support to those who need it most: young people with big ideas but restricted resources of turning these ideas into reality. In order words, E-Coaching provides the much needed flow of advice to turn the seeds of ideas into full-grown plants, which in time will also produce fruits. In view of the fast-growing digital world, it could well be said that E-Coaching is a sustainable program of ensuring the future entrepreneurs are well educated and have received a suitable training.
The AAE-YEN E-Coaching program is bound to be successful because of its well-rounded approach and sustainability. The online mentoring scheme offers young people the chance to get in touch with an established mentor who is willing to spare time and advise them. The support given could range from tips on personal effectiveness and leadership to and business development and IT skills.
The E-Coaching program’s strength lies in recognizing the diversity of needs mentees have and addressing that diversity with special attention to the individual. The program is entirely sustainable because after completion the mentees have received the necessary knowledge to start their own business. With the expansion of the program, the mentees might well turn into next generation’s mentors and educators.
The E-Coaching program has already taken roots in Australia, for example. There companies and individuals are offered advice online. The emphasis is once again on commitment, achievable outcomes and self-sustainable business ideas. The only observable difference between the Australian E-Coaching program and the newly starting AAE-YEN partnership is simply the type of support mentees need. While the Australian program centers mainly on mentees who wish to transform their businesses, the AAE-YEN budding program aims at helping mentees bring their ideas to action and have their first business achievements.
I joined the Association of African Entrepreneurs - Youth Employment Network (AAE-YEN) E-coaching program about 10 months ago (joined on June 2012) as E-Coach. Since then, I have mentored and still mentoring a total of 3 young entrepreneurs; I am to start with the 4th mentee next week.
Basically, I received an online training at the AAE/YEN Mentoring University, on how to lead mentoring relations and the tips acquired are very usefull in facilitating this E-Coaching activity. Finally, I find it amazing to transfer knowledge and skills to people in need, especially to people who intend to become change agents.
