As the 2021 academic calendar commenced on Monday, Islamic Zakaat Fund IZF has called for collaborative efforts among all education stakeholders to ensure good performance of students.

The plea has been made by IZF secondary school bursary officer Martias Mkonjo in an interview with radio Islam on some of the activities the organization is expected to carry out this year.

Mkonjo said it is very disappointing to note that only ten percent of Muslim students make it to different collages.

He said this year IZF is expected to accommodate another 500 new students in secondary schools particularly the form ones.

“We are finalizing all necessary procedures to release this year’s collage intake,” added Mkonjo
