Yearly Sponsorship: Through our Scholarship Program, we provide an annual scholarship to cover the cost of Dorothy’s tuition. Dorothy’s family/guardians are required to cover the remaining costs for daily living such as boarding, meal program, and school supplies. Your contribution of $35, $50, or $75 per month combined with contributions from other generous donors will allow EKARI to continue to provide an annual scholarship to Dorothy. (Credit card processing fees of 3% are deducted from your monthly amount. A greater amount of your contribution will be directed to Dorothy if you are able to cover the processing fees. 10% of your contribution covers EKARI’s operating costs.)
Duration of Sponsorship: It is our goal that you will support Dorothy for the entirety of her education. If you are unable to cover the entire cost of future school years, we will find a cosponsor(s); $35 preferred minimum monthly contribution.
Family History: Dorothy is one of two children in her family. Her parents both died when she was young. She lives with her grandmother who cares for many of her grandchildren although she has no income due to lack of education and employment. Just like her mother, Dorothy was selected to a high quality private high school in Malawi. Her mother never attended this school due to high tuition costs. With the support of EKARI Dorothy now has the chance to attend this school and continue her education.
