100% of EKARI Students Passed Senior Exams!

EKARI High School Seniors Passed Their Exams!
EKARI High School Seniors Passed Their Exams!

Thank you to all who were able to donate to the Year-End Campaign in December! As a reminder, your donation is currently providing laboratory equipment for the Tutoring Program. We excited to share that our Tutoring Program is making an impact! Largely due to the individual attention we are able to provide our students, we reached our goal at the end of the 2014-2015 school year: 100% of our students passed their senior year exam (up from 50% in previous years) allowing them access to a higher education and the likelihood of future employment.

Congratulations to all who passed their exams: Chrispin, John, Stanley, Patricia, Jenipher, and Rhoda! John told Elias, the in-country director for EKARI, “that the 100% pass rate was due to the Tutoring Program, and if EKARI could please continue offering the program to us.” Rhoda also said, “The new laboratory equipment has helped us to carry out experiments for our Biology and Physical Science classes, which prepared us for our year-end examinations.”  

Previously we split the students into two groups - freshman and sophomore students in one group & junior and seniors in a second group. We found that that wasn't the most efficient way to conduct our program because senior students need to focus on their end of year exam. So in December of 2015, we started splitting the students into three groups: freshman/sophomores in one group, juniors in their own group, and then seniors in their own group. We have three classrooms in our community building so this worked well. This allows the teachers to focus on specific content for each grade level. 

Students for Liberty, a youth-run community based organization in Malawi, met with our students during our Tutoring Program. EKARI partners with Students for Liberty in order to mentor our high school students. Students for Liberty teaches our students about goal setting, the college/university application process, and future career/entrepreneurship opportunities. We are currently working on ways to expand our partnership with them to better mentor the students, ensuring that they grow independently and we achieve our long term goal of sustainability within the Phalombe district.

We look forward to sharing another update about the Tutoring Program, as well as the Three Meals a Day Program, very soon. In the meantime, check out our blog which has the latest updates from EKARI.
