Dr. Emmanuel and Leticia Bellon launched the Global Mentorship Network (GM Network) in about 2010, aimed at mentoring young professionals in leadership. Aspiring young professionals from varied backgrounds are assembled into teams and mentored over the course of one to two years, then challenged to go out and mentor other leaders.
The network focuses on leadership growth under four mandates.
The GM Network is headquartered in Kenya; the majority of its participants Kenyan. Participants have taken the training to Botswana and Malawi. Further contacts are underway in Africa and Asia. The Bellons would love to see the GM Network spread across Africa and the world.
Entrust and the GM Network joined forces in 2016.
