Edwin S.

School: Sophomore at Private Secondary School

Birthday: July 21, 2001    Hobby: Studying    Favorite School Subjects: Math

Yearly Sponsorship: $900 ($75/mo)

$810 covers tuition, exam fees, boarding, meal program, uniform, transport home during holidays, basic necessities such as soap, and an allowance for unexpected personal/family needs. Edwin’s guardians are required to provide school supplies in order to take part in his education. (Credit card processing fees (3%) are deducted from this amount. A greater amount of your contribution will be directed to Edwin if you are able to cover the processing fees.)

$90 (10%) covers EKARI’s operating costs.

Duration of Sponsorship: It is our goal that you will support Edwin for the entirety of his education (3 years to complete high school and 4 years of higher 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: Edwin has three siblings, all of which are in school currently. Due to the lack of jobs in Malawi, both his parents have trouble finding long-term work, and they often have to use credit to pay for Edwin’s school fees. Edwin believes education is transformative, and his dream is to be able to return to his village after attaining a job to give back to those who have supported him.
