The Need

School funding in Malawi commonly does not allow for educational school field trips. A majority of students EKARI supports have never traveled outside of southern Malawi to learn about their country or experience firsthand what they learn in the classroom.

Our Program

Annually, EKARI sponsors an educational school field trip for a day to places such as Liwonde National Park and Malawi’s Ilovo Sugar Company in order to enhance students’ classroom education with real life experiences. Once every four years we sponsor an overnight educational school field trip to Lake Malawi or Lilongwe, Malawi’s capital.

Our Impact 

The trips are successful in the way that we see and learn about a lot of things that we never thought to see with our own eyes.” Patricia, EKARI beneficiary
