The Batonga Foundation operates 126 Leadership Clubs across 15 villages. Each Leadership Club is lead by one of our 34 trained, local mentors. Our mentors work tirelessly, 24/7 to teach, guide, support and advocate for the girls in our clubs. The work of our mentors is at the very core of our programs and nothing that we do could be done without them. Take a moment to learn about some of our amazing Mentors below.
