The purpose of this program is to provide mentoring for youth in local shelters in the Atlanta Metro area as well as in disenfranchised southern regions of Cameroon (Bamenda and Limbe). Youth are more likely to succeed when they have a caring adult in their life on a consistent basis. Our mentoring program offers coaching in addition to academic and career guidance.
MD-ZIM Foundation offers youth an opportunity to make a difference in their respective communities through our Entrepreneurship workshops.
