In November of 2018, Dr. Hofmeyr, National Director of StudyTrust approached Phillip Marsh and Mentoring 4 Success for the purpose of exploring a potential relationship that could give affordable and sponsored access to a pilot group of over 1000 students across 17 learning institutions in South Africa. This initiative has unlocked the life-transforming benefits of collaborative student mentoring and support provided in widely dispersed, peer-to-peer and peer-to-professional relationships of trust, as well as the StudyTrust head office team. Common values and a shared passion to make a meaningful difference at scale ensured that the KnowledgeMentor™ App roll out became a reality in just a few weeks.
