Senior Mentors


Challenges Senior Mentors have a minimum of 10 years’ business experience and are willing to give their time and expertise to help businesses in low-and middle-income countries flourish.

Senior mentors work with us to support development agencies, philanthropic trusts and international NGOs. They are often retired, but still keen to stay involved in the development world. As business experts they are able to support the full range of private sector development work.  Many are currently supporting national Challenges Group business development projects in Malawi, Botswana and Sri Lanka.

Challenges Worldwide uses a range of volunteer types to deliver poverty alleviation through enterprise in developing countries. Senior mentors are senior development and business professionals who support ICS volunteers and other Challenges Worldwide activities as Expert Volunteers.  More information (including the application process) can be found at Challenges Worldwide.
