Kalai began its scholarship fund in 1998 with support of 3 individuals: Oscar Chivuna, Cholwe Mwembe, and Clement Mungombe. Since then, we’ve remained steady in our support of students throughout the unsteady sociopolitical climate of Zimbabwe of the last decade. Since inception, we’ve funded over 200 students in their advanced education (high school equivalent) in the Binga region of Zimbabwe, providing tuition, exam fees, and basic supplies like pencils and notebooks. 

At the same time that we help individual students, we are helping the public school system. When we began the scholarship in 1998 there were 50 students per year at Binga Advanced school, that number is now closer to 100. While the most competitive nationwide, the public school system is not fully funded by the Zimbabwean government and thus requires significant tuition from students who most commonly do not have these resources. 

In addition to Advanced School, we have assisted in the College education of 2 students, Lawrance Mudimba and Clement Mwemba, both prior Kalai Advanced School students. We have also established a computer course. The information revolution has presented the opportunity to provide students anywhere in the world access to the global store of knowledge, and to do so at a fraction of the cost of traditional sources. Kalai sees nurturing students’ familiarity with computers as the first step in reducing the information gap found between our two worlds. Most recently we have developed a jobs fair, to assist our students in finding their first jobs as well as identify mentors to help them achieve their dreams post-graduation.
