Mission

EKARI is a community-based nonprofit tackling extreme poverty in Malawi, Africa, supporting education and economic community development.

Our Mission

To build knowledge and skills within youth and their surrounding communities so they can lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Our Vision

Empowered communities leading self-sustaining lives filled with dignity and self-worth; thus, adults and youth who no longer need and even more so no longer want EKARI Foundation’s support.

By the end of 2020, our goal is to increase the high school graduation rate among the students we support to 90 percent. In addition, our goal is to increase the livelihoods in the households we support by 100 percent.
