Hi there! it is my honor to write about the KUCETEKELA FOUNDATION Alumni Association. My name is Gift Kasweka and I’m currently chairman of the KF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. I hope you enjoyed your time being home with family and friends because of the unforeseen coronavirus pandemic.

While many of you were on holiday, the KF alumni and KF staff members spent some time at the KF office discussing the birth of the association. Different groups were formed that suit an individual’s certain skill set in order to work together to improve and discover new ways of sustaining KF and the alumni themselves. These are the available groups: EVENTS DEPARTMENT, TECHNOLOGY PROJECT, ACADEMIC COMMITTEE, PUBLICITY & MARKETING AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEPARTMENT. Each group has its leaders that plan and manage for the group. This is helping the groups succeed in what they do.

Later on, it was decided that all the groups should answer and be run by another leadership despite the group leaders. This leadership is made up of 6 alumni: GIFT KASWEKA as the chairman of the association, Sylvester Mumba as vice chairman, Simangele Magodi as secretary, Vincent Mwafulirwa and Rebecca Ndlovu as liaison. This is to ensure smooth operations and management.

So far so good there has been huge success in the association, The academic committee had hosted a boot camp with an aim to be an intense SAT and leadership training period filled with SAT learning from Martin and Rebecca and also motivation and career talks from various professionals in different fields, not only that but they proudly boast to have managed to win scholarships for the following alumni: Harriet Mwanza to Rwanda, Cecilia Banda to Rwanda and Susan Kamono to Morocco.

On the other hand the entrepreneurship department have managed to secure 5 hectares of Land with the help of the KF office at the sum of k12500. The signing of the papers was done on the 8th of September at the KF office. They now plan to plant Soya beans and other crops on the farm.

I have been managing the association with the little prefecture experience and other leadership positions I had during high school. Being a chairman is hard, easy but also offers a steep learning curve that requires quick adaptation. But overall it provides me with experiences that are useful now and in the future. I am learning to prepare meetings quick and be flexible throughout some days.

Next to our new initiatives, there are also many renowned and new events you do not want to miss out on! Becoming an active KF Alumni Association member offers you all. We want to help you in developing your skills next to your studies. In case you are interested, feel free to plan a coffee date so I can tell you more about it! You can contact me at

On behalf of the KF Alumni Association, I wish you the best of luck with your studies and we hope to see you. Besides that, you are always welcome at Kucetekela Foundation office to talk about any plans you might have.
