Challenge

Education in Zambia is one of the greatest challenges facing young Zambians. A majority of Zambian children do not receive a high school education because of the prohibitive costs, leading to a staggering dropout rate after Grade 7. KF provides high quality scholarships to impoverished Zambian boys and girls, empowering them to break the cycle of poverty from which they come, achieve their dreams, and be successful in life. KF enables our kids to become Zambia's next leaders and role models.

Solution

The Kucetekela Foundation (KF) provides scholarships to impoverished but promising young Zambian boys and girls to attend high quality high schools from Grade 8 through Grade 12 in Lusaka, Zambia. By investing in Zambia's children, we are investing in the future of the country. We provide our students with a chance to change their lives and the lives of others in their country through a great education and by participating in community service projects, work internships, and mentorships.

Long-Term Impact

Support for Margaret will provide her with a great high school education. In turn, this allows Margaret to achieve her career and life goals. You are giving her an opportunity to change the course of her life, break the cycle of poverty from which she comes, and become successful. Through community service programs, work internships, and mentorships, we encourage all of our students to give back to their community so our work and impact can go even further and they can help improve their nation.
