Bedding and Luggage Fund

The Need

A majority of the students whom EKARI supports live away from their families in dormitories on school campuses. These students require a piece of luggage and a school bag to safely and securely transport and store their belongings. Also, many students suffer from recurring illnesses because they sleep directly on dirty mattresses or on the floor without proper bedding.

Our Program

We provide bedding, luggage, and a school bag to all students we support when they enter high school as well as when they move onto a higher education. Our goal is to greatly reduce illness among our students and reduce theft of our students’ belongings.

Our Impact

The rate of illness among our students decreased by 25% during the first year after the inception of our bedding and luggage fund.

Program Funding Amount

Annual: $2,500

A one-time contribution of $100 will provide 10 school bags.

A monthly contribution of $35 will provide 10 large, heavy, and well-made blankets.
