Raising money for Daraja Academy - a boarding school for young Kenyan women
To help empower young women to change the world! Nike's Girl Effect has recognized Daraja as one of the most effective and innovative organizations focused on conquering gender inequality in the world. Founded by a local, Bay Area couple, Daraja is a unique boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic ability and exceptional leaderships skills but no means to continue their education. As a Daraja fundraiser runner, I will be partnered with a Daraja girl on campus who will be running the race on the same day in Kenya.
