Welcome to our newest venture within the Kunjani Project – the Sangalala Series.
The beginning of something amazing
While in Zambia this summer we met a young man who shared his story about a village nearby. He told us about a group of amazing, smart, driven young girls with big dreams to attend university. However, because of their gender they are afforded fewer opportunities than their male counterparts.
Following primary school in Zambia, young women are forced to cut their education short due to lack of funds.
These young women would love to attend university and follow their dreams and aspirations of pursuing a career. However, if they do not get the opportunity to go to college, they are forced into pre-arranged marriages
We want to change that
Our mission is to raise funds through accepting donations and selling merchandise. We have the Sangalala t-shirt and the Sangalala dream catchers.
These funds will go to the Sangalala Scholarship, a university scholarship that will send a young woman to college in Zambia.
The dream catchers are handmade from recycled materials in Zambia. The dream catchers represent the dreams and ambitions of the girls we are striving to help. They also represent our devotion to help them achieve their goals. These catchers are made by Mulberry Mongoose, a company created to raise awareness and funds for elephant conservation in Zambia. In addition to their main mission, they are also helping create jobs within a small community in Zambia.
By purchasing this dream catcher you will not only be helping us to send a young girl to college, but you will also be a part of job creation and elephant conservation in Zambia.
