I got to know Mrs Awe professionally when she first gave a mentoring training programme to our Sunday School teachers and carers in 2009. Ever since, we have collaborated on many topics over mentoring sessions for our class children aged between 10 and 12. I have come to know and admire her passion for educating and empowering children and youths for coping with their life issues and challenges. Mrs Awe is very knowledgeable in this field and is always willing and available to assist with providing guidance and contents for our monthly mentoring sessions. With her help and supervision, we have covered a wide range of topics such as Bullying, Self-esteem, Identity and Confidence. The teachers have learnt from her not to impose on but to offer children the options available to them in the various challenges they face.
Mrs Awe's contribution to us all is truly immeasurable. She is our unsung hero.

The training has had an adverse effect on me, the pace was right, the practical session was superb and the trainer knew her stuff. The training has impacted me as a parent to be more patient with my children. I would recommend this training to others.

The trainer and the training were excellent and very relevant to the mentoring role. The quality of training was very good and mentors feel more confident on their role as a result of attending this training
