Insurance Company

The Miway Insurance company mentored eight learners and the two highest performers received R 40,000.00 education bursaries.

 

MiWay’s Men and Women In The Making Project is a great mentorship programme designed by Miway to help guide learners in career choices and life skills. The programme chooses eight learners based on their academic results and financial needs.

The eight learners are paired up with Miway mentors. The mentors are managers from the insurance company, who provide ongoing support for the youngsters as they work their way through their final year of studies.

“At MiWay, we’re passionate about the future of South Africa and this incredible programme is something we’ve launched with a view to really driving positive change through education,” says Nthabiseng Moloi, Head of Marketing & Brand of MiWay Insurance. “We believe that by uplifting our youth during this sensitive stage of their development, we’ll be able to assist them in reaching their full potential and create positive agents for transformation in this country.”

Miway also runs a second programme called Miheart which has already facilitated computer literacy for over 4,000 learners across the country.

Of the eight learners in the mentorship programme, the top 2 performers were offered R 40,000.00 education bursaries. The other six learners can access other benefits from Miway.

‘All participants in the programme are now eligible to apply for an accredited learnership, which affords them both practical work experience and theoretical learning opportunities, enabling them to go on to achieve a registered qualification.’

The first year of the programme was deemed a success so this year it has been expanded to include more mentors for the next 8 learners.

“Whereas last year each mentor was allocated two students, this year will see each learner receive undivided attention from their assigned mentor, something which we hope will drive even more positive results,” says Moloi.
