SCI’s Migration Learning Exchange (MLE) aims to strengthen the effectiveness of global social change activism in migration and refugee advocacy, policy and practice. The MLE established its mentoring pilot programme to help build the leadership capacity, capability and effectiveness of migration and refugee activists on the ground. The programme offers one-to-one mentoring support to individuals who are dealing with significant advocacy, leadership and communications challenges. Through the development of safe and trusted mentoring relationships, activists have the space and support to reflect, test out ideas, gain deeper insights, enhance their networks and explore appropriate strategies and tactics to strengthen their practice and shape sustainable social change.
SCI has had the opportunity to engage a number of social change activists and leaders in the migration and refugee sector to help test out its MLE mentoring pilot programme. Further information on the initiative is available by contacting Eleanor Gill.
