KF Update and Newsletter

Hello friends of KF!

We hope that you all are well!  We are writing to share some exciting updates from Lusaka and invite you to an upcoming KF event.  
Attached is the latest KF Newsletter - now fully written and produced by our students in Lusaka!  Our students have written many stories about their first school term of 2014.  We hope that the stories give you a glimpse into the experiences enjoyed by our scholars as well as many of their accomplishments.  Be sure to check out Margeret's article about  Cross Country.  For even more stories and information about our wonderful students, please be sure to check out their blog:  www.kfstudentstories.blogspot.com
We also want to advertise the 3rd Annual Bike for KF event in New York City!  This year, Bike for KF will be held on Saturday, September 20th.  This event is a beautiful, non-competitive bike ride that starts in New York, goes over the George Washington Bridge into northern New Jersey and then back into NYC.  Riders can choose to ride either 30km or 60km, and everyone riding is raising money for KF.  It has been an incredibly fun event the last two years and we are back for more this year.  Our goal this year is $30,000 so we need YOUR help!  Please email Oliver (oliver_barry@kucetekelafoundation.org,) if you are interested in joining the Bike for KF team!  If you can’t ride this year, we hope you will consider supporting one of our riders.
As always, thank you very much for all your support and interest in our students and program.  If ever you have questions or want more information, please send us an email.

Margaret's Term I Update

Dear Friends,

At Chalo Trust, Margaret still participates in the JETS math and science club where she presented an exhibit on the dangers of global warming to her fellow classmates. She is also a member of the Community Service Club. Margaret participated in the fashion show and designed a line of clothes for the fashion show. She really enjoys modeling and would love to model in the future. At Traditional Day, Margaret was awarded with the position of Head Girl of Chalo Trust. Additionally, Margaret was identified by the Zambian US Embassy to participate in the 2014 Pan- African Youth Leadership Program.

Margaret’s Thoughts
At the beginning of this school year, Margaret assumed the Head Girl position at Chalo Trust and she feels very blessed to be in this position and she wants to use the position to promote change at her school. Margaret believes in developing leaders that implement positive change. Additionally, Margaret really inspires to study in Australia one day and she knows that she has to keep working hard to achieve this goal. Lastly. Margaret aspires to be a pharmacist and wants to help many Zambians throughout her life.

The first term in Zambia concluded last month.  As expected, Margaret continued to have excellent results.  Please see her Term I results.

KF and Margaret Update

Dear Donors,

We hope this update finds you well and enjoying a great start to 2014! The academic year in Zambia concluded in December with several more milestone achievements for Kucetekela Foundation (KF).  All six of our Grade 12 KF scholars graduated which continues our proud record of 100% graduation rate, now over the past seven years of operation.

KF supported 29 students in secondary school during 2013 as well as 20 alumni who are now studying or working in Zambia and other countries across the globe!  Our students in 2013 continued our record of high academic achievement. Many of our students earned academic awards for their excellence and several students also earned awards for outstanding character and leadership.  Nearly all of our eligible students were awarded with a prefect position for the 2014, which is an honor our students have earned through demonstration of their leadership skills.  In the third term, our students have been particularly active in their community service projects which continue to develop and expand in the students’ home communities and schools.   For individual stories from our current students and alumni, please check out our students’ blog site: http://kfstudentstories.blogspot.com

Margaret finished off the year very strong.  Attached are her Term 3 results from 2013.  We are very proud of her continued success.
