Claire Buiocchi

THE STORY:

Mary brings a unique personal experience to Daraja. In Class 8, she got pregnant, and is currently the mother of a one year old girl named Chantelle. Despite the challenges that this has brought her, Mary has been very open about using this experience to bring some reality to a discussion about preventing early marriages and pregnancy among young girls in Kenya.

After giving birth to her daughter, Mary returned to school and still managed to become the head of her class. She has a deep passion around the importance of girls’ education. Where she grew up only about 10% of the girls continue with their education. She says, “I want to work hard to be an example to others ... I want to be their role model.”

Mary sees Daraja as the perfect opportunity to empower those around her to fulfill their potential as powerful women. She believes Daraja will allow her to “confidentially face and approach other girls... I will talk about the importance of education and the disadvantages of early pregnancies and early marriages.” Her confidence and ownership of both her past and future is inspiring and will take her far at Daraja.
