Mentoring and Entrepreneurship Program
Lafarge Egypt launched a unique volunteer program among its employees which provided training for its leadership and executives on issues related to mentorship. Program participants were assigned to a one-year program to mentor small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs. The program provides an opportunity of mutual growth for both the trainees and the trainers.
The program seeks to encourage the growth of a culture of entrepreneurship in Egypt, support successful businesses and generate new job opportunities.
In 2018, Lafarge Egypt replicated its mentoring experience with AWTAD Foundation, furthering the successes of Lafarge Egypt’s Mentoring And Entrepreneurship Program.
