Year in School (2017-18): College studying Education Languages (Raphael on the left in photo)
Family History: Raphael is the second born in a family of five children. On her own, Raphael’s mother tried to support all five of her children’s education. She borrowed much money for this purpose, fell into a large debt, and therefore was not able to support Raphael beyond his junior year in high school. With support from EKARI Foundation, Raphael graduated from high school and went on to earn his teaching certificate and become a primary school teacher. He received a loan through our Student Loan Program in order to survive until he received his first paycheck and is currently continuing his higher education in order to receive a degree in education.
