BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: Bay to Breakers

EVENT DATE: May 15, 2011

Steve Disenhof

THE STORY:

Jambo!

Join our Bay to Breakers' team to support this unique and special school! This Sunday I'll be participating here while Teddy Nyakado runs 7.5 miles in Kenya. Three weeks after that, we'll be returning to Kenya to continue the teaching we began last summer.

As many of you know, Jono and I brought a computer and photography lab to Kenya last summer and introduced the students and teachers to those technologies in over 30 hours of instruction in the 2+ weeks we were there.

The big news is: we're going again this June to pick up where we left off. In addition to teaching new skills, we'll be mentoring 10 of the Daraja girls to teach our curriculum to the new Freshmen! And, we're not alone - 16 other Marin students and teachers will be joining us for our three weeks in Kenya!

Now to the fundraiser: It's been many years since I did the 7.5 mile Bay to Breakers, but I am finding a way to participate again this year. While I'm participating here in San Francisco on May 15th, Teddy N will be matching my efforts on the Daraja campus in Kenya (along with all 77 girls)! Daraja Academy is supported through sponsors like you - please help us reach our goal! 

Teddy is very special to our family; a bright, well-spoken sophomore from desperate family circumstances, she is the student who our family is sponsoring for her four high school years.

Please join our family in sponsoring this unique and wonderful school. And to learn more about the technology project, visit our website at www.darajatechnologyproject.com. 

We and all the girls say Asante Sana - Thank you very much!

-Steve
