Summary

The aim of this project is to provide two different opportunities to further high school student's education and increase their chances of employment. The first opportunity will send five graduated high school students through a year long Skills Training Course in a field of their choice. The second opportunity will send 2 high school students through the Yale Young African Scholar Program to receive support in applying for University, scholarships and financial aid.

Challenge

In Zambia, only 8% of youth complete secondary school; with just 3% of those students going on to complete higher education. With 60% of the population living below the poverty line, it is not uncommon for children to be forced into labour to support their families at a time where they should be attending school and learning. Additionally, many talented students graduating from Grade 12 often are limited to extend their training due to the big financial commitment.

Solution

This tertiary program will provide five graduated high school students the opportunity to participate in a year long skills training course such as hospitality, electrician, carpentry and mechanics at Lummuno and YCTC Training Centers. Additionally, two high school students will participate in the 2 week Yale Young African Scholars program in Ghana which educates the students on University opportunities and supplies them with a mentor after the course to support them in applying to Universities.

Long-Term Impact

The overall aim is to increase employability of students who cannot afford to go to university or further their education. Once going through this program, the students have an increased opportunity for attaining employment, providing an income for themselves and setting themselves up for a successful future. Additionally, following their enrollment we would ensure regular check-ins with the student so we can track their development and provide any additional mentoring support if needed.
