Mentoring makes a difference

Asha’s Mentorship Programme

The Asha Mentorship Programme matches college students with professionals in Delhi who provide advice, guidance and leadership as the students embark on their academic and career journeys.

This pioneering initiative was launched in March 2012, and ever more professionals are joining as mentors. They are matched to mentees according to the educational qualifications and work experience of the mentor, and the college course and career aims of the student.

Through their mentors, students gain confidence, learn about work life and are able to meet other professionals. Amit from Kalkaji is now employed in a good company with the help of his mentor.

We also provide opportunities for students to attend workshops and events where they can meet top Human Resource managers from multinational companies and receive expert advice on topics such as interview skills and career selection.

Asha is always looking for new mentors to join the team. If you are based in Delhi, and are interested in finding out more, please email
