The USAP Community School is a residential 11th and 12th grade (A Level) school in Zimbabwe that educates high-achieving, low-income students to excel at the world's top universities with the aim of building society. In 2021, we have a total of 7 students (10% of our students) from Tongogara Refugee Camp. This project will raise funds for us to be able to continue covering all costs for refugee students to access the high quality and transformative value-based education our school provides.
Educational opportunities for refugee youth are extremely limited. At Tongogara Refugee Camp in Zimbabwe a camp of 17,000+ refugees from mainly from DRC, Burundi and Rwanda, the camp school ends with O level/10th grade. Bright and motivated refugee students cannot walk to any other school to complete high school or hope of university and UNHCR and other groups operating in the camp only offer vocational courses such as carpentry. There is no electricity or Intenet in camp for online learning.
USAP Community School is dedicated to providing a transformative education to talented and motivated young people who have no opportunities to access quality education. We have recruited at Tongogara Camp and currently have seven refugee students at USAPCS. This project will allow us to cover the costs of continuing to include refugee students at our school and offer them bright educational futures as well as support and expand the tutoring group they started themselves,TWEENs, in the camp.
This project will allow refugee students currently with no options to access a high quality education that will open doors for their future. By educating these motivated young displaced people, we see a deep impact no only on themselves and their immediate families, but on the refugee communities from which they come , The refugee alumni of our program have excelled at university and have give back with social impact projects and on refugee issues far beyond their immediate communities.
