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
