Asante! Thank you very much…

Thank you very much for your generous support of Daraja Academy via Team Arif, Caroline and Alice! Your contribution is deeply appreciated!

Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls from homes of extreme material poverty. Students with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills that lack the financial means to continue their education are selected from all over Kenya to attend the Academy. Daraja provides students with full scholarships and resources to be critical thinkers, progressive leaders and architects of their futures.

The Race for Daraja is the one time of year Daraja students have an opportunity to contribute to the fundraising for their education. Students run through villages surrounding the Daraja campus in Kenya at the same as San Francisco Bay Area supporters run in the historic Bay to Breakers race. Separated by an ocean, united by a cause. Powerful, right?

Please know that your gift to Daraja makes a very real difference in the lives of these students and gives encouragement to our teachers and staff as they work together in creating bridges to opportunity.

Warmest regards,

Daraja Education Fund

Thank you everyone for your …
Thank you everyone for your generous donations. We had a great time today running in Bay to Breakers. All of the other local Daraja teams were wearing Daraja t-shirts and we all had a photograph of the Daraja student we were running for on our backs. It was fun to come across other Daraja participants throughout the run today and cheer them on. Our team of Chris, Alexandra and myself, and my nephew Cameron ran with us as well, raised $1,750 for Daraja thanks to all of you. Thank you again.
