Los Angeles

The EKAM Los Angeles chapter is a group of students inspired by EKAM’s work to help the underprivileged children and women, as well as help people in need during times of crisis. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for the marginal and underprivileged communities in:

  • Medical care, education and financial independence, with focus on women and children.
  • Our goal is to create sustainable, long-term solutions through impactful projects to uplift and empower vulnerable communities.
  • We believe that every individual has the right to quality medical care, education and self-reliance, regardless of their socio-economic status, race, or gender.
  • We strive to create a holistic approach towards the Whole Family with focus on children and their mothers, and
  • To create a consortium of various non profits to provide multi faceted assistance to the needy families to bring their overall well being to a better state than today.

Project Malawi

Raising funds for adolescent training and girl empowerment camps in Malawi in East Africa. The aim of this campaign is to improve the living standards of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of the Malawi community, including orphans, girls, extremely poor women, and patients with incurable diseases such as AIDS, cancer, and others requiring palliative care.

We are working towards this by empowering girls in rural villages and investing in their future through access to education and community programs. We intend to provide various forms of support, including: paying for a month's education, school uniforms, an entire school year of education, bicycles to get to school, and even sending a girl to university for a year or through college after high school.

Overall, the goal is to transform the lives of those who are most in need in the community.

Goal: $5,000.00
Collected: $5,034.98
