Thomas is the fourth born in a family of nine children. Both parents are alive and were small scale farmers until Thomas’s father fell ill and therefore were not able to provide assistance for Thomas’s education. He received tuition assistance for high school from the local Phalombe Social Welfare Office for a short time until the office ran out of funding.
With EKARI Foundation’s support, Thomas graduated from high school and went on to receive his Diploma in Midwifery from Malawi’s Holy Family Nursing College in 2016! He is currently seeking an internship with support from our Apprenticeship Program.
