Family History: Alice is the 1st born in a family of 4 children. Both parents passed away. EKARI Foundation sponsored Alice during the 2011-12 school year. Unfortunately, Alice became pregnant during the 2012-13 school year and was required to put her education on hold for one year due to school policy. Many youth in this situation do not return to school after their child’s birth due to the inability to support themselves and their newborn child. Check out our Health Education and HIV/AIDS Program to understand how EKARI is trying to combat the issue of early pregnancy. In December 2012, Alice courageously shared her testimony about the challenges of early pregnancy with the students part of EKARI’s Sponsor a Student Program and greatly wishes to continue her education. With EKARI’s support, Alice will continue her education.
