It was a great privilege compiling and presenting the 2018 Mentors Training for Usiko. I have learnt a lot from the organisation’s leadership and its mentors and I am impressed by the great work that they are doing in the communities they serve.
I have also had the honour of writing a blog on one of their volunteers, Aunty Anna. Hope you will be as inspired by her story as I was.
Imanuella Muller Usiko Programme Manager
After attending a workshop hosted by the Sustainable Development Network, where Bianca was presenting on volunteer management, our Usiko director reached out to Bianca when the need arose for us to train a new group of volunteers at our NPO. This group would be serving as mentors to participants in our programmes on a voluntary basis. From the beginning it was clear that Bianca has a deep passion for the work that she does. After expressing our needs to Bianca, she put together a programme for us with which we were very satisfied. She immersed herself in the Usiko culture as much as she could in order to get a clearer picture of the work that we do. This fostered strong connections with not only the organisation but also with the volunteers that she would be training.
