High School Scholarships

The Foundation currently supports 27 High School Students with scholarships. Each year, the orphan and vulnerable students we support from Hwange Main Camp Primary School and Mambanje Primary School compete for a full scholarship to the best boarding school they can gain entrance to in Zimbabwe.

Because of the challenges the families caring for the orphan’s face, many of these students would have dropped out of school by now without this assistance. The students attend the best school that they can gain entrance into and embark on stringent scholarship conditions to stay in the program. We also aim to provide them with guidance and support in all areas of their lives which influence their physical and mental wellbeing and therefore performance at school.

By attending boarding schools, it is a great financial relief on the families who care for these children and also means that the students are able to focus solely on their school work. In Zimbabwe, the standard at boarding schools is still recognized as being superior to most day schools.

In recent years we have seen the students in the higher grades participating in our community events, by giving back they are learning to be role models and leaders in their own communities. They also take on a mentorship role over the younger scholarship students. We had several students do work experience over their holidays, which was a great success with two of our students hosted by African Bush Camps at Somalisa Camp, in Hwange National Park, for a week in December and something which we plan to develop and expand moving forward, broadening the horizons of our students.

For the second year in a row, all of the orphaned and vulnerable students from Main Camp Primary School had their sponsors continue their support into high school, meaning that there was a 0% drop out rate for the grade seven classes. The building of these relationships has been very rewarding for both the students, their families and the sponsors alike.
