Whenever we are not carrying out the business of textiles, be sure that we are out there helping to show a young one the way – Mentoring the younger generation is close to the heart of our founder and we have adopted this on a larger scale at The Bolakoka Company.
A generation of values is silently leaving us, without creating and mentoring today’s generation. However, there is hope…there are individuals, non-governmental and non-profit organisations that are doing commendable work, to not let this happen.
It is here that Bolakoka hopes to lend a hand. In its small way, Bolakoka advances values that contribute to the development of individuals.
IN MENTORING GIRLS
Our Founder, Bolatito Bayo-Puddicombe launched the 30 LAMPS mentoring initiative in 2015 for teenage girls by helping to further the cause of mentoring women at the Idea Builders Initiative by Mrs Lucy Kanu and creating a framework for mentoring girls of Queen’s College with the school management, staff and community of Old Girls.
