Elementary school is free in Malawi, but high school is not. Equitas is currently supporting 75 orphans and vulnerable children in several villages across the country. We provide school fees, uniforms, books and supplies. These scholars face difficult challenges to achieve their goals, many walking several miles from their homes to school campuses. A few years ago, we spent entire days with four orphans in our program, and you can watch videos that tell their stories on our videos page. For $300, you can sponsor one student for one year.
We are also supporting one college attending nursing college, and our goal is to increase the number of scholars with a desire to attend university, but who lack the necessary resources.
