Unfortunately I will not be returning to Daraja this summer, but an intrepid group of 18 Marin Academy individuals will be continuing the partnership MA has created with Daraja Academy. Like last year, we will be running the annual Bay to Breakers race to raise money for Daraja Academy. On May 20th, the day of the race, the girls of Daraja will be running an equal number of laps in solidarity with the Marin Academy volunteers. Please help us fund this life-changeing school – no donation is too small!
Thanks you for supporting my cause!
Daraja Academy is an amazing, entirely free secondary school situated just outside of Nanyuki, Kenya, a town four hours north of Nairobi. Each year the school takes the brightest, most dedicated girls from all around Kenya, girls who wouldn't otherwise have a chance to attend school and further their educations. By being a girl-specific school, Daraja does it's part to combat the disproportionate statistic that 70 percent of the world's 130 million out-of-school youth are girls.
