As a young practitioner in the field of peacebuilding, I did not think mentorship was a role that I could possibly fill. I thought I only had to focus on gaining new knowledge and skills and applying them. But being part of MPI’s Grassroots Peacebuilding Mentors Training Program allowed me to see that the understanding and experience you gain is only truly valuable when you are able to share the lessons you learned with others. I was taught that letting others drink from your cup is as important as emptying and filling it again. Through the program, I gained confidence in myself and capacity to mentor other young grassroots peace practitioners, who are themselves untapped mentors in their own communities. The program is both a journey of self-discovery and of multiplying!
