Our Moon Education
Our Moon Education
Our Moon is a small education charity working in Zambia. We provide bright but financially-disadvantaged young people with skills and knowledge to access quality higher education. Despite 70% of Zambians living in extreme poverty and only 0. 2% attending university, increasing numbers of young people graduate from secondary school with outstanding grades. We give access to A-levels and other internationally-recognised qualifications and provide personal development to encourage social change.
Our Moon's mission is to empower Zambia’s young people, through education and personal guidance, to bring about positive social change
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 and other relevant qualifications within Zambia, take part in volunteering activities, community projects and an extended essay. 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. To empower a wider group of young people, we have an additional programme: Ambassadors for Social Change. Young people are selected to attend a training course so that they start identifying problems in their communities and looking for solutions. They are encouraged to write blogs to give themselves a voice. The trickle down effect of our involvement is huge as we impact, through our involvement and our students' involvement, the lives of many in their communities and country.
