We are excited for the first round of college acceptances for our inaugural Class of 2021 alumni! We wish them all the very best as they set out to pursue their higher education in the United States. We remain grateful to the many colleges and universities who have worked and continue to work with our students in the admissions process. 

While most of the acceptances have so far been from US institutions, our alumni have applied to various global universities that are able to offer them scholarships.  We look forward to the next round of admissions acceptances for the rest of our alumni in the class of 2021!

Happy New Year!

Cambridge AS and A Level exam results are out and we are so proud of our students!  Our first cohort at USAP Community School got their final A Level results which they are using to apply to colleges and universities internationallly.  Our second cohort received their AS exam results. 

Despite all of the challenges our students and school faced in the throes of the COVID pandemic in 2021, including extended lockdowns where they accessed learning on WhatsApp on phones and kindles with solar panels and batteries, they have excelled with exceptional results!

We would not be able to provide access to high quality, transformative education without your support.  Again, thank you!

As we end what has been a challenging year for everyone, we wish you healthy, happy and restful holidays with your friends and family.  We are very grateful for what we have been able to achieve in 2021 to provide truly tranformative education for determined, high-achieving, economically-disadvantaged young people here in Zimbabwe. 

None of this would have been possible without your faith in our initiative and continued generous support.  We look forward to moving onwards and upwards in 2022 with a third cohort of USAP Community School studnets as well as with more initiatives and opportunities for young people in Zimbabwe to grow and learn.

From all of us at Education Matters and USAP Community School, thank you.

Graduation
Graduation

As we come to the end of 2021, we have so much to be grateful for at the USAP Community School.  In Zimbabwe, schools reopened in September after two months of lockdown delays.  Our students were excited to be back on campus for their final academic term ahead of their November Cambridge AS and A Level examinations for the Lower 6 and Upper 6 students respectively.   

We held our Capstone Showcase of year-long research projects conducted by 44 students in the graduating class. The showcase topics included high rates of teenage pregnancies, waste management, the design of low cost water filters for low income communities, and the arts. Thanks to a generous donation from one of our supporters, 12 students received fellowships to implement their solutions in their communities in the gap period prior to departing for university. We look forward to seeing  our students making impactful contributions in their local communities.

Early this December we were excited to witness the graduation of the inaugural cohort of 45 students from the USAP Community School. This is a historic moment for faculty, staff and supporters of our school given all the operating challenges brought on by the pandemic. We are grateful for your continued support as all this would not be possible without you.  We wish our graduates best of luck as they continue their college applications in the next few months.

We have finished carefully selecting 41 students who will make our third cohort and will join us in February 2022.  We are impressed by their determination and talent and look forward to providing them with a truly transformative education - the key to their future and that of their families and communities. We hope you will continue to support us as we work toward our goal of further developing our school and providing opportunities to more determined high-achieving Zimbabwean students from low-income backgrounds. 

Thank you and wishing you all Happy Holidays!

USAP Community School AS Results
USAP Community School AS Results

We are excited to share some great news from USAP Community School!  Our first Cambridge AS results are out for the 45 students in the first class of the USAP Community School.  We are so proud of this achievement during these challenging COVID times of remote learning.  27 students earned A's in all three subjects, and 7 more got 2 A's and a B.

In Zimbabwe, schools are currently closed under COVID-19 clockdown restrictions but all our students continue their learning remotely through lessons delivered via Whatsapp. We are looking forward to schools reopening safely in the next few weeks.  Our 45 students continue to prepare for their second and final Cambridge A-level exams later in October.  We wish them success in their preparations and final exams!

As always, we are grateful to you as all of this would not have been possible without your support. We continue to raise funds to reach our goals of building our permanent campus and sustaining the costs of our operations, which we vigorously keep as low as possible. Together we are transforming lives, assisting talented and determined young people by providing opportunities to reach their potential.  We can not thank you enough!
