When I reflect on the past few years, I can freely say, with a warm smile that speaks volumes, what a transformation I have experienced since I began working with Crossing Thresholds. Through the mentorship program, I have developed the skills of generosity and public speaking.
My work has been to direct the mentorship program. Crossing Thresholds finds mentors in the US, pairs them with students in Kibera, and hosts video calls between mentors and sponsored students. Mentors meet their mentees through these calls at a minimum of three times a year. On these calls, we may do virtual home visits, tours of a school, or even a visit to a sports game.
