The academic year in Zambia starts in January and ends in December, consisting of three academic terms. Secondary school starts in Grade 8 and is completed after Grade 12. All KF students are selected to start in Grade 8. The KF scholarship program is a commitment of five years, both from KF and the student, in order to support the full graduation of the selected students.
KF continues to grow and currently sponsors 27 students (17 female, 10 male) across its two partner schools, PestalozziWorld and Chalo Trust School.

The academic year in Zambia concluded in December with an enormous achievement for our program. All ten of our original group of KF scholars graduated from secondary school! KF is proud to report a 100% graduation rate and a 0% drop-out rate over the past five years. These ten students have been sponsored by KF since 2007 and supported for all five years of secondary school.
