"I realized that a major challenge with non-profits is that people who donate to it don't get feedback on how they made an impact. Also its important to have a life changing impact rather than marginal impact on someones life.
With SuccessMentors you help someone earn a professional degree and get employed. This changes candidates and their families life. As a sponsor you get to interview a student and be in touch with them and see them grown through the entire journey. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you have positively impacted someone's life forever!"
Along his journey, he realized that in addition to strong desire and motivation to be educated and develop professional career, there is also need for financial and mentorship assistance. “There are many candidates who have strong potential to have successful professional career however they lack financial support and suitable mentorship. This is where SuccessMentors can make a real difference for those who are in need of such assistance” – Manoj says. According to Manoj, SuccessMentors is very attractive for sponsors as it offers choice of either providing financial or mentorship contributions – two distinct ways of creating positive impact on someone’s life.
“Working in the renewable energy field, I put great emphasize on developing sustainable solutions for the society. SuccessMentors’ model develops a self sustaining community of sponsors. Today’s candidates are tomorrow’s sponsors. When you sponsor a candidate at SuccessMentor, you are planting a seed which will eventually grow in a tree of sponsors” he added.

To make substantial impact its critical to support and mentor individuals all the way until they are self-sufficient. We don't do activities where the individual returns back to their old helpless state.
Each individual involved in a SuccessMentors story should get meaningful feedback on the impact they are having. SuccessMentors directly connects the sponsors and the mentors with the candidate to form a team. This team experience the journey together and gets measurable feedback on their contribution as the individual grows.
Participation for all
Some individuals can be more impactful by being a mentor providing mentorship while others by being a sponsor. SuccessMentors requires commitment but allows everyone to decide how they participate.
