A reminder about Photovoice
Mentee participants can tell us the story of your mentoring experiences and be involved in an innovative evaluation!
Find the guide to participating in Photovoice here.
All you need to do at the moment is take photos about your experience – at a meeting, preparing for a meeting, a symbol of your experience to date. Be as creative as you want!
Upload your photos on Mentorloop to Andrew, or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org
