Coach Mentoring Philanthropy
“In an ever-expanding world where resources are limited, and in which we are all inter-connected, it is only through sharing that we will create a sustainable future.”
Our philanthropic work enables us to share our professional skills and knowledge towards creating a more sustainable and socially just world and in so doing, demonstrate our love for humanity. "Caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it means to be humane.”
Coach Mentoring Ltd has experience of working with aid, humanitarian, development, environmental, NGO and charity organisations.
When I consider the enormity of the issues that face humanity and our environment, I feel so inspired to offer my services and talents to “be the change you want to see in the world” (Mahatma Gandhi). All I have to offer are my coaching and mentoring skills and knowledge and my energy and personality, to make a difference. Through Coach Mentoring Philanthropy I have developed a platform from which I can, with my colleagues “be that change”.

Copyleft with Greenpeace
Working with Greenpeace has opened our eyes to how we can collaborate with organisations to develop ‘copyleft’ materials for our clients in the NGO and charity sectors to use. In collaboration with Greenpeace and with their financial support we have produced this video on ‘The first meeting – how to prepare as a mentor’ for our clients to download and use. We hope this will be the start of many more collaborations to produce materials to use widely across the aid, humanitarian, development and environmental sectors.
‘The first meeting – how to prepare as a mentor’
We hope you find the video useful and please give us your feedback and contact Lis Merrick to discuss your interest in developing more resources in this way. Our grateful thanks to Kuno Roth, Greenpeace Learning & Development for making this possible.
One philanthrophy project has been to work with a number of organisations in the aid, humanitarian and development sectors to create an across organisational mentoring programme. Over a number of years this has increased to 13 organisations (Save the Children (UK and other members), UNHCR, World Vision, Plan International, War Child Holland, WaterAid, British Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, Greenpeace, MSF, CAFOD, Tearfund & UNICEF) with over 70 mentoring pairs across 66 countries globally. We even have capability to deliver briefings and resources in French (although 99% are currently mentoring in English) and may look at other languages if there is a demand for it. The programme uses the MentorNet platform for mentors and mentees to provide their profiles which supports us in effective matching. It also allows the mentors and mentees to keep in touch with each other securely and access mentoring resources all in one place.
