Zambia's Struggle How We Help How You Can Help News & Highlights Resources About Us How We Help
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 communitiy schools. 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 Zambian students.
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 information, please contact Peggy Rogers.
