Magadalena is one of 10 children being cared for by her elderly grandmother. After her tuition support from the local social welfare office was cut in 2010, Magadalena turned to EKARI for support and was able to complete high school. She is now pushing the cultural and social norms of her patriarchal society as she completes trade school studying bricklaying!
With EKARI’s support, Magadalena graduated from Trade School having studied Bricklaying in 2017! With the support from our Apprenticeship Program, she will be starting an apprenticeship soon with a construction company to work on the expansion of hospital!
