These four pillars have been designed according to empirical evidence found in academic literature. Over the past five years we have guided student development according to these pillars, and have experienced incredibly positive results.
Detailed monitoring of student progress on academics and personal issues.
Additional one-on-one tutoring support for students that are battling academically.
Peer-to-peer mentoring that is well monitored and reported on.
Providing resources for personal development and career readiness.

Lungela is our online resource platform with a collection of resources to help students prepare for the workplace. Topics range from tips and guidance on personal and professional skills to videos that help students develop essential academic skill sets, which ultimately develops more well-rounded and prepared graduates.
Lesedi is our peer-to-peer mentoring service. We connect students with one of our carefully selected peer mentors; senior students that have shown great progress in their own academics and extracurricular activities. All meetings and engagements are thoroughly reported on through our Mila platform. Our mentors are not psychologists as they are meant to serve the role of big sisters and big brothers so that students never feel alone. This ensures that students have someone who can guide them based on prior experience in the university environment.
Peer mentors serve as a critical connection point for the accelerated development of students, and also help to pick up on red flags for students who may be going through personal difficulties. Thorough monitoring of engagement sets our Lesedi service apart from other mentorship programmes. It is a lack of mentor-mentee monitoring that many university mentorship programmes often lack.
