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.’

First Day of School

by Steve Cook

I stood in Gadi Village on the morning of September 5, 2016, looking through my tears at the beautiful faces surrounding me, and prayed for time to stop. I did not want that moment to end.

Imagination Brought To Life

by Lauren George

We were created by a God who loves us unequivocally. Who delights in us-our unique qualities, cultures, quirks, gifts and emotions. He doesn’t just love part of us, but all of us. And how creative he is to fine tune each of us to be reflective of him.
