Project Managers Against Poverty (PMAP) is a non-profit organisation. Its mission is to fight global poverty by building capacity in project management expertise through a sustainable Mentoring Programme. PMAP has partnered with Humentum to run an e-mentoring network for project managers who work in international development and the Third Sector. Our MentorNet e-mentoring platform enables mentors and mentees to register and manage their profiles, to securely establish and conduct successful mentoring relationships. Mentees are able to choose their mentors. The service is provided at no cost to users.
Read all about the PMAP scheme in the magazine article The Challenges of Managing Projects in International Development which featured in Project Manager Today.
