Family History: Aubrey is the last born in a family of six children. Aubrey’s father passed away in 2004, which left his family in a vulnerable situation. Aubrey was not able to eat breakfast in the morning and only ate one meal when he returned home from school, which affected his studies. Aubrey’s mother tried to support her family with the business of brewing beer, but she was not able to pay for Aubrey’s school fees. Aubrey and his mother approached the Phalombe Social Welfare Office for assistance, but did not receive any funding. With support from EKARI Foundation, Aubrey is now able to focus on his education.
