Fourteen EKARI Foundation volunteers from the University of Michigan take the TAP challenge

Written on 10 Jun 2015

Fourteen volunteers from the University of Michigan Engineering Program recently took the TAP challenge! They are currently volunteering with EKARI Foundation in the southern region of Malawi, Africa providing free small group tutoring in math and science to youth in need of support prior to the youths' high school final examinations. 

TAP Teaching in Community Building Day

EKARI Foundation is a community based nonprofit organization that focuses on youth education, adult literacy, and economic community development. The EKARI Foundation has a strict policy that all of their volunteers in Malawi use water filtration devices in lieu of plastic water bottles. The U of M volunteers are happily using their SteriPENs!

Keep traveling smart and responsibly,
