Alongside the 'YemiAlade Collection' launch is the ‘Get Mented’ initiative, an innovative mentorship network for girls and women across Nigeria which aims to provide a platform via which girls and women across Nigeria are given the opportunity to give and receive mentorship in vocational/career development, self-improvement, financial intelligence and intellectual development hence enabling them to pursue their dreams and achieve their goals.
“With the Get Mented Initiative our primary aim is to primarily provide a virtual platform via which any accomplished woman (popular/not-so-popular) in the society can mentor and inspire any hardworking girl/woman that expresses her need for guidance and mentorship. We believe this platform will boost women’s contribution to the social and economic development of Nigeria.” Seyi Banigbe, Founder 'Get Mented' & Creative Director, Bland2Glam offered.
Proceeds from the 'Yemi Alade Collection' will go into the funding of the 'Get Mented' Initiative.
