MESSAGE FROM DREAM KIDS - CEO, GREAT SCHOLARS ACADEMY, VISION, MISSION, CORE VALUES.
I am so excited to see this dream come true!
The first dream was to help the orphaned and vulnerable children. This dream is being realized in Malala Village, where we have been supporting children since 2003 by offering school supplies and digging a water well for the community!
The second dream as you might guess, is to establish a school where my passion would not only be espoused, but be put in practice. I have the passion to offer Christ centered education. Yes a Christian School! It was during my high school days at a Christian school that I met the Lord Jesus as my personal Saviour, hence my desire to see others benefit like I did.
Great Scholars Academy will have Christian Counselors who will be available for our students. Its envisioned that they will offer nurturing and discipleship that is needed for the young people to grow to be
respectful, resilient, reliable, and responsible members of society. To that effect, we will on the other hand, expect our students to work hard, and aim high in their academics, spiritual, and social lives, as we offer them the quality education, that nurtures, empowers, transforms, and imparts them to impact Chilanga, Zambia, and the entire world! This journey with you and me is starting in January of 2018!
We aim at providing an environment where our students will accomplish their God given dreams through hard work. Our faculty is ready to work tirelessly, and endlessly to give our students knowledge, skills, and tools to help them face their future with confidence and indeed, enable them to change their generation!
Our Board stands ready to give support, guidance, and any assistance needed in every aspects of the school’s endeavours realize the vision and the set goals.
Our Chilanga community is ready to support the vision of the school (Great Scholars Academy). This is just the beginning and more is yet to come!
I am grateful to my anonymous supporters and friends who have made this dream became a reality!

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” T. E. Lawrence
