Sharon Milner, a Zambian citizen, plans to create and launch METANOIA, a Christian harm prevention initiative focused on raising awareness of risky behaviors, linking individuals with support services, and advocating for stricter regulations to promote healthier communities.

Milner spent 27 years in Zimbabwe honing her administrative skills, notably in the banking sector with African Banking Corporation (now Access Bank). She ventured into entrepreneurship alongside her husband, establishing ProSat (Pvt) Ltd. before relocating back to Zambia in 2010.

Milner’s commitment to community development extended to promoting Conservation Agriculture in Zambia through “Look & Learn” Agriculture Tours for Welthunger Hilfe (WHH) in collaboration with various agricultural stakeholders.

She has set up and managed the secretariat of the Independent Schools Association of Zambia (ISAZ), worked as Acting Head and Business Manager of a private school, and has been serving on the Board of the Duke of Edinburgh International Award in Zambia (DofE) since 2015.
