The academic year in Zambia concluded in December 2011 with an enormous achievement for our program. All ten of our original group of KF scholars graduated from secondary school! KF is proud to report a 100% graduation rate and a 0% drop-out rate over the past five years. These ten students have been sponsored by KF since 2007 and supported for all five years of secondary school. Since less than 10% of Zambians graduate from secondary school, this achievement is particularly meaningful for KF.
Margaret had a wonderful year too and continued to excel in all areas earning "A"s in all of her coursework - she scored at the top of her class!
Attached are her final grade 9 outstanding results.
Here is a summary of Margaret's school year:
It has been another spectacular year for Margaret. She has demonstrated her commitment to her academics and her natural brilliance. In Term 1 she earned 8 A’s, an impressive feat, and came 2nd in her class. Term 2 was equally remarkable; she earned 7 A’s and maintained her 2nd position. Even during the holidays she is committed to revising her work and improving her performance; she spent time over the August break doing tuitions at DK. She has impressed all of her teachers and plans to finish the year strong with high marks on her National Exam

We are delighted to report that Edna’s project on Global Giving has been successfully funded! Thanks to your support, Edna now has the financial support to complete her secondary school education in Zambia. Edna completed Grade 11 this month (December) and is excited to start Grade 12, her final year, in January 2012. She hopes and expects to attend university after graduation – a testament to the commitment Edna has made to her education, leadership and future success. Her achievements could not have been possible without your support.
After Edna graduates from secondary school in December 2012, she will have a full school year before she plans to enroll in a Zambian university. This is the process for all Zambian graduates and Edna hopes to make the most of it. Kucetekela Foundation will help her do so.
Any additional contributions for Edna through Global Giving will be used to support her “gap” year including her work internships and further development and implementation of community service projects. Edna also intends to serve as a tutor for current Kucetekela Foundation students.
Thank you again for supporting Edna and the Kucetekela Foundation. With your help, we are providing a better life for these exceptional students.
