Amelia Howard's Fundraiser:

Amelia and Faustine Race for Daraja

THE STORY:

Faustine was born into the Samburu tribe and has five brothers and five sisters. She is the first girl in her family to finish 8th grade and go on to secondary school. Had she not been accepted into Daraja, Faustine says she would be
taking care of her younger siblings, or married to an older man. “My tribal culture is very bad because they like giving out their daughters to get married to a local man or a person who is not educated, for the purpose of getting a dowry,” said
Faustine. Her parents could have gotten up to seven or eight cattle in exchange for their daughter’s hand in marriage.

Today at Daraja Academy:
It is no surprise that Faustine is passionate about preventing early marriages. Although she wants to one day become a doctor, her mission in life is to return to her community to teach them what she calls the “Daraja Family Behavior,”
whereby everyone is treated equally, fairly and with love.
