Applications are open for the third cohort of the Umi Mentorship Program for Mums of African Descent 2024. The Umi Mentorship Program is one of the flagship products at Umi.

It helps new mothers and mums of children below 3 years old become better versions of themselves as mothers, wives, partners and professionals by tapping into the wealth of knowledge, experiences and network of mothers who have walked this path of motherhood and have excelled at it.

  • Selected mentees will be paired with an experienced mum and professional who have walked familiar paths.
  • Mentees will get the support they need to have a progressive career and raise sound children.
  • Mentees will get access to a private community of mums walking similar paths.


  • Applicants must be from Africa and can be living either on the continent or in the diaspora.
  • Applicants must be the biological mother of a child who is between ages 0 and 3 years.
