Birthday: 1991    

Family History: Lazarous is the second born in a family of three children. His father passed away when Lazarous was very young. His mother is alive, but unable to support her children with their education due to lack of sustained employment and lack of an education herself. Lazarous received tuition assistance from the Phalombe Social Welfare Office for a short time until they were unable to support him due to funding deficits. With support from EKARI Foundation, Lazarous graduated from high school and went on to earn his teaching certificate and become a primary school teacher, but he was not content. He is now continuing his higher education to pursue his passion for nursing!
