2021 Progress in UAE

Mentorship Program with Western Union Foundation

EFE and Western Union Foundation collaborated to create a mentorship program in which WU employees mentored youth from the MENA region. Participants heard from experienced mentors to prepare them to make the most of the program. Over four months, 17 WU mentors from nine countries met virtually with EFE mentees from five countries. Mentors and mentees enjoyed and benefited from the experience. In July 2021, participants met via Zoom to reflect on the program.
