Our Moon Education
Our Moon Education
Our Moon focuses on helping young, bright but financially-disadvantaged Zambians to access university and develop the skills, knowledge and dispositions to contribute to the future development of their communities, country and continent. We carefully select students, help them develop their leadership, citizenship and employability skills and guide their university applications.
Our Moon's mission is to work with bright young Zambians from severely disadvantaged backgrounds to help them to access university. We develop their skills, knowledge and dispositions so that they can make a positive impact on their country once they have completed their studies.
In line with SDG4, we need to improve access to university, especially for society’s most marginalised. We have, therefore, constructed our Young Leaders Scholars programme where we provide carefully chosen young people (based on rigorous selection process) with the opportunity to study for A-levels within Zambia, take part in volunteering activities, community projects and an extended essay project. We provide them with one-to-one mentorship to apply to universities around the world offering full scholarships and develop their vision for how they will contribute to their country in the future. In addition, we run several Tomorrow’s Leaders Forums to inspire and motivate a very much larger body of young people across Zambia. This is a two day conference where we create awareness of opportunities to access university as well as discuss citizenship, future careers for their country and continent and develop their problem solving skills. To help these students, we run a Teachers' Conference to advise them on opportunities for their students. Our fourth programme is a university applications bootcamp where selected A-level students are invited to attend a university applications bootcamp.
