THE STORY:

Race for 77. There are currently 77 girls at the Daraja Academy, a secondary school for exceptional girls who otherwise could not afford to attend high school.  77 supporters of the Daraja Academy will run the Bay to Breakers to raise money for the school. The girls at Daraja will run a simultaneous lap-a-thon at the school in Kenya to support the fund raising. Our goal is $10 from 77 people or $770 to sponsor my team - Margaret Zeki, a 16 year old sophomore at Daraja and myself.  Read about Margaret's story below.

Check out Daraja Academy, a project of the Carr Educational Foundation, at http://www.daraja-academy.org.

 

 

 

 

 

Background:

 

Margaret is one of six children and her father died when she was young. She attended a primary school in an extremely rural area where electricity and a reliable source of water are nonexistent.

During the end of her primary education, Margaret knew that despite her exceptional marks it would be nearly impossible to go to secondary school. Her bother, however, provided moral support and constantly encouraged Margaret to keep up her academics.

Upon graduation, many of her classmates continued to secondary school and Margaret was left behind. Some months later she received a letter from Daraja Academy. Now she is the first sibling in her family to attend secondary school.

Today at Daraja Academy:

 

Margaret has quickly established herself as a standout student. She participates well in class, has a great attitude, and ranked 9th in her class during the first term.

Despite coming from such a different background, Margaret has come out of her shell quickly. She is very open with the Daraja students, staff and volunteers. Her nickname with a few volunteers is “Smiley” since it is easy to find her displaying her beautiful trademark smile.
