Participating in the developers community hackathon aside, this application was inspired by the children of Hope Center, Mathare. Whose founder is always looking for mentors to talk to the children. He worries constantly that because the hard life is all the children see, they will continue the cycle of poverty.
It was also inspired by the collaborative spirit in my work place that encourages learning new skills by following tutorials as well as finding a mentor in that field to help you grow in the right way.
This bot will help persons interested in learning a particular field to find a mentor in a field they would like to level up on.
