TAWAH is delighted to welcome the Mentoring Class of 2019/2020. As we
start this new program to empower young women in construction, we believe it will not only help
make a smooth transition from the academic environment to professional work,
but also it will offer an opportunity for networking and to make life long
friendships and sisterhoods with women professionals in construction field. Our main objective is to strengthen the
tradition of women supporting other women along the way to accomplish great
things. The power of women has always grown out of cooperation and working
together to achieve our shared goals. Hon.
Dr. Mary Mwanjelwa, the Deputy Minister of State in the President’s Office
responsible for Public Service and Good Governance, officially launched the
program in Sept 23rd 2019 at the Hyatt regency Kilimanjaro Hotel. 74 mentees who are students and recent graduates of
architecture, engineering and Quantity Surveying and 43 mentors (Women working
in the construction industry) will benefit from this program. Our very best wishes to you ladies on beginning your mentorship
