Welcome to Shawata


Shawata (rightfully spelt shawarta) is an Hausa word meaning “to advice, teach and mentor“.

Shawata.com is a brainchild of My Character Counts Initiative and driven by the continuous need to contribute. An online social mentoring platform created to bridge the gap in mentoring relationships. We understand the need for mentorship as a tool for continuous successful succession and plan to provide the right platform to achieve this in our society and Africa at large.

On Shawata, we bring willing mentors and intending mentees together to teach and learn from each other.
