Family History: Gertrude is the 2nd born in a family of 5 children. Both of her parents are alive. Gertrude currently attends a private school that accepts only the most intelligent students from southern Malawi and offers a high quality education; an education that will allow Gertrude to go on to receive a college education. Although Gertrude’s father is a teacher, her parents cannot afford to continue paying tuition at this school and are planning to move Gertrude to a school with a much lower tuition, but one that does not offer a quality education. Without support from EKARI, Gertrude’s dream of attending college is within her reach.
