Who We Help
Kusassa is a small fund and as such we have to choose carefully who we can help with the greatest impact. As such we have chosen to ensure that high achieving girls, who have the capacity, ability and determination to succeed have access to education when they otherwise would not.
The girls we select are from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds and without a scholarship they would not have the opportunity to advance their education. These are the girls who will be lost to the future impact they can have if they are not given the opportunity.
Research has proven that gender balanced countries are more successful in all respects, as such, gender equality is a priority goal, specifically for countries like Zimbabwe.
Statistics here demonstrate that there are 50% or more girls that are not managing to access high school and that is an unacceptable number and certainly puts gender equality on a slow burner.
