Mission Statement

The Trust builds a better world through global fellowship programs that develop and connect compassionate, innovative, and public-spirited people committed to solving humanity’s challenges.
Kuculá Foundation brings together and develops exceptional people from all over the world, and in all fields of study, who are impatient with the way things are and have the courage to act.

Every scholarship granted makes for an immediate and lasting impact. Our Scholarships represent not only support for the next generation of Kuculá Scholars, but also a belief in our collective future – one that is even more connected, collaborative and impactful.

Kuculá seeks to support top performing students from financially challenged backgrounds. With support from other partners, the program also offers access to leadership training to these students, in a bid to mold them into agents of change, transformation and solution providers.

Our program seeks to assist in providing for the education needs with a view to ensuring the students broaden their minds and seek to extend such culture to younger ones when their access economic opportunities. We are premised on the fabric of togetherness for a purpose, with education at the forefront.

In order to achieve a wider impact, we are keen on organizing and promoting causes and activities in schools which will lead to the betterment of the mental and social capacities of the students. We also address the poor conditions in some schools in terms of lacking in infrastructure by upgrading them in concerted efforts with other partners and sponsors.

In contributing to leadership development in Africa through supporting African students undertaking tertiary study through our scholarship program, we strive to develop individual human skills across the African society, to help the continent achieve success and prosperity, and full participation in the global world. This makes Kuculá Foundation unique, measurable, sustainable and economically efficient.

Message from our Founder

From a young age my family taught me to always respect and help others. Growing up in Angola and at a time when the country was facing several adversities, I was always reminded that it is part of our social responsibility to take a proactive role in giving back to those who need it most.

It is with this in mind, that I made it a solemn promise to myself to give my contribution to my community, to my country and to Africa by founding and through the work of the Kuculá Foundation.

Education is no longer just for the privileged few, it is a right for everyone. My ultimate motivation is education. This, I believe to be the most essential element to form the basis of sustainable development for Africa — a continent that we all want to see reaching its full potential.

Education ought to be available to all. Whether for children, adolescents or adults, education is no longer just for the privileged few, it is a right for everyone.

That is why Kuculá Foundation is determined to have its footprint in this journey of enlightening minds for the betterment of the future generations.
