EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013

THE STORY:

Bilha is part of the Luo tribe and was second born in a family of seven. She is from the Nyanza province in Northern Kenya. Bilha is very appreciative to have a mother and father who care about her a great deal. “My mum and dad raised me up because they saw the best that was in me, lifted me up where I couldn’t reach.”

If Bilha had not been accepted into Daraja, she would still live at home picking up odd jobs to help support her younger siblings.

Spreading awareness about the importance of educating girls is critical to Bilha, who empathizes with girls who see no future when faced with a life without an education. “Girls should be treated like equal human beings,” she said,

“therefore the world should know that Kenyan girls deserve an education.”

Bilha’s favorite activity at Daraja is the science club. She also enjoys playing soccer and netball.

When Bilha leaves Daraja, she plans to attend a university and become a writer. “I would like to write novels,” Bilha said. “My first book will be about the girls of Daraja and the second book will be about girl’s education.”
