Zambia's Scholarship Fund provides a unique Cycle of Education
program that works in one of the poorest countries in Africa!
Through our Cycle of Education:
We provide a monthly salary for teachers to teach in poor and rural
We provide scholarships for students to attend high school.
We encourage high school students to become teachers by sponsoring
them at a two year teacher's college.
We support existing Zambian schools. 100% of donations go directly to
Unemployment in Zambia is over 90% and due to lack of revenue, the Zambain government
cannot provide public education to Zambians beyond the seventh grade.
Ten years ago, Zambia's Scholarship Fund (ZSF) began helping students and schools in the
remote Northern Province of Zambia. In this poor area, teachers for elementary education
are scarce and many communities have not had a teacher for years.
ZSF began by sponsoring 10 students at Kasama Teacher's College. Today, we support
over 521 college students and 756 high school students. We have also created over 223
jobs by paying teachers to teach in poor and rural village schools.
Zambia's Scholarship Fund is listed as an approved charity in
the Combined Federal Campaign's annual publication of
501(c)(3) charities. To locate us in the publication, our
CFC number is 10806.
ZSF also works with USAID, African Vision of Hope, Books
for Africa, and the Better Business Bureau. For more

ZSF would like to express our
appreciation to Gladys Lamb, Director
and Founder of the I Treasure
organization, which has raised money in
her Brooklyn, New York community to
help the people of Zambia. I Treasure is
a faith-based mentorship organization
for girls and women ages 10-19, which
promotes independence, empowerment,
and character building through prayer
and community involvement.
Although Ms. Lamb's community is
considered poor by United States'
standards, she and her organization
recognize that many of the poorest
Americans are still much better off than
many people in Zambia.
Ms. Lamb says: "The reason for
developing a partnership with The
Zambia Scholarship Fund and
Soles4Souls, Inc. I used these civics
projects to teach the girls not to be
materialistic and value education here in
the United States. Although we live in
what is considered to be the 'poorer
neighborhoods' we still have so much to
give. This mentorship organization was
created to teach young girls how to love
themselves first by developing a
relationship with GOD, second to build a
stronger relationship with their mothers
and to be true in everything they do and
