The 1873 Network Mentorship Program

Mentorship is a personal development a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger, but have a certain area of expertise. It is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn.

Our focus of mentoring is to develop the whole person and so the techniques are broad and require wisdom in order to be used appropriately.

Programs / Campaigns under The 1873 Network.

The awareness- raising activities are a constructive and positive catalytic force that are already leading to positive change in actions and behaviour. The programs of the network are intended to transform mind-sets with the broader objective of driving transformation in the communities we live in.

These are the activities we have done and campaigns the network has been involved in:


This campaign seeks to raise awareness about the different channels and paths one can take to acquire wealth, soft wealth or hard wealth. It falls under one of the pillars of the network which is was a form of mentorship, where we had a successful and prominent person hosting a group of forward leaning individuals at their house or office. The idea was to inspire people though sharing and opening doors to those who look up to them. Sharing their stories of how they got to where they are and how race or history did not stop them from acquiring the wealth they have today, inspiring people to work hard and work smart. We had lunch with Dr Tim Tebeila and Ms Jackie Huntley in February as activities for the Bridge to Wealth Campaign.

The 1873 Network Bridge to Wealth


The second pillar of the 1873 Network is Equip. we have ad many activities that promote educating and sharing of knowledge and insights among members of the network through conversations and events with state and non- state actors in our effort to promote borderless mind-sets. We had an informal conversation on economic freedom and how it can best be won, with Adv. Dali Mpofu leading the conversation. We also had an informal conversation on the true meaning of freedom and how best to maximise on our freedom. We also had an informal conversation on the role of youth in the growth and development of the African economy led by Deputy Minister Obed Bapela.


This campaign seeks to discover, showcase and recognize those among us who inspire us and on whose shoulders we can stand on. In January we hosted a farewell dinner for General Derrick Mgwebi, who was appointed the Commander In Chief of The UN Peacekeeping Force in DRC. We honored and saluted him on this day for his service and leadership skills to expose those of us who are forward leaning to what is possible if one sticks to a career and keeps his or her eyes on the real price of life. Being a part of this initiative helped me to improve my literacy about institutions that historically were exclusive, and this was a way for me to be a friend of the insiders.
