Mentor a Child Foundation (MCF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded by young people living within and outside The Gambia. We are committed to providing useful resources for students in making informed decision about their career choices. The implementation of this initiative involves the full co-operation of MCF in partnership with schools and institutions within The Gambia, to lay a strong foundation for both upper basic and secondary school students to maximize their career options by providing them the required knowledge and resources. We organize seasonal training for teachers from various schools and institutions on mentorship. In Addition, students enrolled on our mentorship program are provided with day visit opportunities to different institutions in line with our career sensitization initiative as well as the being able to shadow other professionals in their field of study/work for first-hand work experience, all to aid their decision on career choices. At MCF, we believe that, the journey for every successful career lies in its roots, thus, mentoring children at a tender stage is fundamental. We believe that every child deserves the right to pursue the career of their choosing in order to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams. Mentor a Child Foundation (MCF) was incorporated under the companies act 2013 as a charitable organization/foundation by the Registrar of companies on the 22nd December 2015 with company registration number 2015/C264
