The Zawadi Africa Education Fund is based on the highly successful Kennedy/Mboya Student airlifts of the 1960′s, through a partnership with individuals and institutions with an interest in creating leadership opportunities for girls in Africa.
The Zawadi Africa Education Fund has delivered an excellent return in its first few years.
To date, there are students enrolled at top universities in the US including Yale University, Xavier University and Smith College.
The students in the program have an average GPA of 3.70.
This is made even more impressive by the fact that the students are all required to be partners in this initiative, by holding down on-campus jobs to pay for books and incidentals.
On average, the program pays for less than 10% of the total cost of a 4-year education, with the balance funded by merit based college grants and scholarships.
