Zawadi Education Program
Lakeland College partners with the Zawadi Africa Education Fund, a program that provides highly deserving, but financially disadvantaged, young women from East Africa the opportunity to obtain a college degree. We currently have four young women on campus and have graduated four from the program. Every other year, we bring two new students into the program.
We are proud to sponsor the education of these outstanding students, who become leaders on our campus and who are empowered and equipped to make significant contributions to their communities where, traditionally, women have not had a major voice.
Our financial commitment to them is considerable. The college provides full tuition scholarships, housing, meals, and employment for four years ... totaling over $155,000 for each young woman.
Please join us in building Africa one woman at a time by giving to our Zawadi Education Program. By helping one Zawadi woman, you are providing a role model for future generations of African Girls, by ongoing mentoring, following the "each one, teach one" philosophy of Zawadi Africa.
