Elijah is currently pursuing a Master’s in Economic Development at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Before that, he worked for the Central Bank of Zambia as a Statistical Assistant, and later as a Research Assistant at Zambia Institute for Policy Analysis and Research.
He is passionate about human development and social justice, especially in the area of education and income distribution. He believes that tackling the challenge of inequality is likely to prove one of the twenty-first century’s great challenges. He shares the vision of University Impact, and he is thrilled to join the team after undergoing a three-week UI bootcamp where he developed a better understanding of impact investing.
Outside of work, Elijah enjoys being outdoors and visiting new places.
