The International Labour Organisation is the UN specialized agency which seeks the promotion of social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights. It promotes the development of independent employers’ and workers’ organizations and provides training and advisory services to those organizations.
BYST was chosen as an effective practice programme by the ILO SEED (Sustainable Employment and Economic Development) programme. Considering that BYST has designed this excellent mentoring model they have also been asked to develop a mentoring tool kit, to compliment the other tools being developed and disseminated. BYST has also written an article on its mentoring model for a publication that is being produced with support from the ILO and International Development Research Centre in Canada.
