What is Menta Africa?

Ever imagined how it feels going down a road you hope will lead you to your desired destination? While doing so, you realize you need to learn the road better. You are unsure how many potholes you will find on your way or how many dead ends you will encounter. Worse, you are unaware of the dark tunnels you may have to go through while taking that road.

Now imagine a situation where you got prior information from someone on the other side. Or you find out that someone else is already taking the road and can inform you what it is like going through it. I bet it would be simpler to travel through it. The same can apply to your career life. You can start a career journey by yourself or have someone guide you.

Menta believes that it is possible to travel the right road. Menta also believes preparing beforehand to navigate through the potholes and avoid dead ends is possible by linking you with someone on the other side, a mentor. In this article we provide answers on What Is Menta and how Menta provides a platform linking you to 'someone on the other side'.

A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained.” -– Shawn Hitchcock
