"Poverty is the greatest barrier for education"

#Mentessa is proud to support the social project "Coding for Independence" by Visions for Children e.V. and Learning Lions - led by Hila Safi and Julia Steffener, both Female Tech Leaders and trainees at Siemens.

Its mission is to support underprivileged minorities and improve their chances on the job market by building trust and confidence through education in IT-related topics.

Mentessa is happy to support the initiative with a community to enable matching and mentoring sessions with Kenyan female students. The organizers are currently collecting donations to purchase laptops for schools in Uganda to hold IT and programming courses.

Six reasons to connect employees for informal learning in today's workplace
As the name suggests, informal learning is a learning experience which is spontaneous and unregimented. Someone’s curiosity may be piqued by something they had heard earlier, urging them to search for more information on the company’s learning platform or online. A manager may look over training materials because of a question they had been unable to answer earlier. A junior employee may gain valuable insights by chatting to an experienced colleague. All of the above are examples of informal learning. The common theme is that employees are relaxed. Many times, so relaxed that they may not even regard the experience as learning. In addition, there is no curriculum, no requirement to cover any predetermined items. While in some cases HR and L&D professionals may have helped to connect people – for example by organizing company events – or may have helped create the general setting, the actual content of the learning experience is not planned in advance.
