Thursday, July 15, 2021

Several families in the Kunskapsskolan India schools have suffered irreparable losses due to the Covid-19 pandemic by losing their family providers putting the schooling of their children at risk. Mrs Cecilia Carnefeldt, CEO Kunskapsskolan Education announced that for this reason decided to initiate a fund amounting to INR 2.5 Crores that aims to ensure that children who have lost a supporting parent will be able to continue their education with schools of Kunskapsskolan based in India. The fund will be named Birgitta Ericson Memorial Fund after one of the architects behind and creators of the values, pedagogical foundation and methods that are used within Kunskapsskolan worldwide.

The fund will proffer 100% sponsorship throughout the academic journey of the learner at Kunskapsskolan schools. The sponsorship is applicable across curricula. Existing functional students of Kunskapsskolan who have joined the school on or before 15th July 2021 and have lost an earning parent will be eligible for this sponsorship. Through this fund, Kunskapsskolan Education Sweden aims to ensure that our students who are most in need will continue to be supported through their school years. It is our endeavour to stand by our community.
