+Title: DRAFT - Mentoring Programme Pilot with India ICFOSS - DRAFT
+The ASF has been participating in many mentoring initiatives, and it's now
+partening in a pilot project with India ICFOSS to provide mentoring for 
+undergraduated and graduated students that have interest in learning how
+to participate in open source communitites at ASF.
+The mentoring programme is not here to teach you to write documentation or
+code. It is here to help you understand how to make a valuable contribution
+to an Apache project. You can expect to be guided through our contribution
+processes. You can also expect to get technical support with respect to
+your chosen project. You cannot expect your mentor to be a "teacher", they
+will provide enough information for you to progress within the project. You
+need to bring the confidence to take their guidance and discover the detail
+for yourself.
