Our Vision

Empowered communities leading self-sustaining lives filled with dignity and self-worth; thus, adults and youth who no longer need and even more so no longer want EKARI Foundation’s support.

By the end of 2020, our goal is to increase the high school graduation rate among the students we support to 90 percent. In addition, our goal is to increase the livelihoods in the households we support by 100 percent.

Our Mission

Educating Malawians toward self dependency.

We Value

We believe in empowering the future generations of Malawi to emerge from poverty through their own efforts by providing access to quality and relevant education, coupled with the necessary educational resources and training to assist communities in establishing and celebrating sustainable livelihoods.

Empowerment | As our core value; working to empower those we work with throughout all of our programs.

Education and Business | Coupled with other forms of development work as a means to break the cycle of poverty.

Donor Awareness | Failure to educate a donor equals failure to provide sustainable and empowering community development.

Partnership | Working with those most in need rather than working for them; partnering with local government, local nonprofit, and community based organizations.

Assets and Capacities | Of those most in need that we are working with.

Accountability and Transparency | To our partners, contributors, and those we serve.
