New University Acceptance Letters!

Promise

EKARI's most recent high school graduates received support from Harry, EKARI's Youth Coordinator, who worked with each student individually to assess their skill level and goals in order to help them decide which colleges to apply to. Each student applied to a mimimum of three higher education institutions. Several students applied to five or more.

Four of the seven graduates started their higher education in February! Linley is studying Information Science and Technology. Catherine is studying Environmental Management. Frank is studying Development Studies. And Michael will focus on Business Administration. All are studying for their Bachelor's degrees.

Two more of the seven students, Promise and Stella, recently received their university acceptance letters! Promise will study for his Bachelor's Degree in Manufacturing Engineering at Malawi's University of Science and Technology. Stella will study for her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and Midwifery at Malawi's Kamuzu College of Nursing. They will start in late summer or early fall. 

Rather than simply waiting for school to start, Promise and Stella have taken advantage of the time between high school and university to support their families. Promise works part-time for a local NGO conducting surveys and gathering assessment information in Phalombe communities. Stella works as a teacher at a local primary school. 

Thank you for supporting these young Malawian leaders as they continue on a path toward reaching their full potential. 

All my best,

Hello EKARI Supporters, 

EKARI's recent high school graduates completed EKARI's Computer Program course in mid December. For the past several months, they have received support from Harry, EKARI's Youth Coordinator, who worked with each student individually to assess their skill level and goals in order to help them decide which colleges to apply to. Each student applied to a mimimum of three higher education institutions. Several students applied to five or more.   

Four of the seven recent high school graduates started their higher education in February!

Linley will study Information Science and Technology.

Catherine will study Environmental Management.

Frank will study Development Studies.

And Michael will focus on Business Administration.

All are studying for their bachelor degrees.

The remaining three students have applied to several Malawi universities and expect to receive acceptance letters soon.

Thank you for your continued support!

Motivational Gathering for EKARI College Students

In January, we hosted a two day motivational and interactive gathering for EKARI's college students focused on entrepreneurship, resilience, and health.

On the first day, a young Malawian entrepreneur, Gift Sukez Sukali, shared his story of how he created and continues to grow his business. He emphasized the importance of starting a business to create jobs for the many unemployed youth in Malawi. Next, a past student, Laston, told his story of resilience. After being underemployed for some time and continuously searching for a better opportunity, Laston finally obtained a job relevant to his college studies. Finally, a health expert spoke with the students about self-care and sex education while in college. 

On the second day, the students discussed challenges that their families and communities face and brainstormed solutions. EKARI's goal is for the students we support to become leaders in their communities and one day help to solve the challenges that their families face on a daily basis.
