Our Fees

Running any school costs money, but it costs much more to provide a high-quality education.

We provide our learners with one of the best educations in Zambia. In 2023, this will cost us over K1,400,000 in running costs (power, food, repairs, etc), equipment, books and salaries.

We run the school as a charity, so there aren’t any owners trying to make money for themselves from educating children. Instead, the school has friends overseas who cover half our costs. They give so we can keep our fees as low as possible.

This means you can buy a Mukwashi education for your child which is worth three times the price you actually pay.

We charge fees per term, and we ask you to pay for the whole term in advance at the start of every term.

 Our fees & hours for 2023

GOOD NEWS.      There has been no increase in fees.

Plus, parents and carers who pay their fees in full at the start of term receive a 10% discount on the following term’s fees.

Parents who are paid monthly may make a signed, formal agreement with the school to pay each term’s fees in two instalments; and parents who are paid fortnightly may make a signed, formal agreement to pay each term’s fees in four instalments.

Parents with several children may make a signed formal agreement to spread the year’s fees and make eleven monthly payments.
