BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: Bay to Breakers

EVENT DATE: May 15, 2011

Jenevieve Francisco

THE STORY:

On May 15, I will participate in the Bay to Breakers race.  76 other Daraja supporters and I will represent the 77 students currently enrolled in Daraja Academy. We are each matched with a student who will be running the race in Kenya as I walk in San Francisco. I will represent the student in the race, be her advocate and help her raise money for her education.

I am advocating for Annastacia Cherotoch.  Annastacia lost both parents by the age of 3.  Although her aunt was raising eight children at the time, she took her in.  Her aunt had meager means but was a huge source of encouragement.

Despite being among the top performers of her class Annastacia had to stay home during the 2008-2009 school year because she couldn't afford it.  However, the following year, she was granted a scholarship to Daraja.

Annastacia initially faced difficulty overcoming a language barrier, but she is already showing vast improvement and is feeling more comfortable speaking out.  She aspires to be a lawyer someday.  She has an incredible inner fire which she shares with her teachers and fellow students, every day.

Here's a list to give you an idea of how Daraja Academy operates and where the money goes: 

$25: A student's school uniform
$45: A student's school supplies such as textbooks, exercise books (1 year)
$100: A student's meals (1 month)
$250: Teacher's salary (1 month)
$300: Pen/pencils for every student (1 year)
$1,000: A full medical physical for 10 girls (possibly the first they've ever had) 

$2,500: Full student sponsorship (1 year): shelter, healthcare and counseling services, food, and access to quality high school education for an entire year.  

 

About Daraja Academy

Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but no means to continue their education.  The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services which allows students to focus on their academic and personal potential, without being hindered by the everyday barriers of poverty.
