Ruth Malunga

by Steve Cook

Ruth Malunga is our second college student and we couldn't be more proud of her. She was raised in the Salima district. If that sounds familiar, it's because Gadi Village is also in the Salima district. Ruth is studying to be nurse at the University of Malawi.

A Year of Surprises

by Steve Cook

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season and have been able to slow down from the frenetic pace often associated with holidays. Every year at this time, I reflect on the past 12 months – victories, losses, lessons learned. This year had a couple of surprises.

What I've Learned from Coffee for Education

by Steve Cook

I never really thought I would ever be interested in doing something like Coffee For Education. Yet, here I am wishing I would never have to leave.

10 Years!

by Steve Cook

We founded Equitas in 2007 – 10 years ago last month. I visited Malawi in April 2008, and that trip would end up being one of the most transformative experiences of my life.

Why We Ran For Equitas

by Gabriel Coyle

We ran 100 miles in 28.5 hours. I know what you’re thinking, “Why? Why run from 6am on Saturday nonstop until Sunday at 10:30am?

Suffer Well and Run Weary

by Thomas George

In my mind, I envisioned myself crossing the finish line with Gabe and Tim over and over and over. The goal of crossing that finish line to honor Nathan kept our bodies moving forward.

One Day We Will Walk on Streets of Gold

by Lauren George

There is no way to adequately describe what it’s like to be in the Gadi/Mwape Village. And there are too many precious moments engraved on my heart to ever give it justice. But if I had to pick one phrase, it would be ‘as it is in heaven.’
