$200 (10%) covers EKARI’s operating costs.

Duration of Sponsorship: It is our goal that you will support Flora for the entirety of her education. If you are unable to cover the entire cost, we will find a cosponsor(s) for the remaining amount; $30 preferred minimum monthly contribution.

Family History: Flora is the 1st born in a family of two children. Her father passed away in 2003. Flora’s mother is alive, but is unable to support Flora’s education due to lack of education herself and lack of sustained employment. Flora received tuition assistance from the Phalombe Social Welfare Office for a short time until the office was unable to support her due to funding deficits. Flora’s mother, Febbie, is on the EKARI Board of Directors. With EKARI’s support, Flora will be able to continue her education.
