Project Description


A positive role model in a young person’s life can have a profound impact on their self-confidence and motivation. In fact, “Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor”. (The Mentoring Effect, 2014).

Hold the Space will be a platform that connects mentors willing to provide their time (and optionally money) to guide children (especially orphans) in underprivileged communities.

Our slogan is “create the change” and our mission is to compel as many business / organization leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, artisans, specialists, university students and other skilled mentors to step up and make a difference.

Many people and organizations want to help and give back to those less fortunate, however they either do not know how to make a real difference or are worried whether their money will reach its intended target. Our organization will give investors a unique opportunity to have one-on-one contact with those whose lives they are changing for the better.

Through our volunteer and mentorship programs, we will be offering people worldwide the opportunity to get involved in various ways.


Most of us have had a teacher, supervisor or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as delegators, role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:

  • A sincere desire to be involved with shaping a young person’s life

  • Respect for young people

  • Active listening skills

  • Empathy

  • Ability to see solutions and opportunities

  • Committed

  • Inspiring
