THE STORY:

May 19th is an important date for me and the girls of Daraja Academy. This will be the 3rd Bay to Breakers - Daraja Academy fundraiser and hopefully the most successfull.

Having been to campus, this specific fundraiser really touches my heart because I know how important it is for the girls to personally help raise money for their school. Every girl is partnered with someone in the US who either runs or cheers for TEAM DARAJA.

I am partnered with Zaituna, an incredible young lady with a big heart and even bigger dreams - with your support we can can help make those dreams a reality.

 

PLEASE READ BELOW ABOUT MY PARTNER, ZAITUNA

Zaituna  and her two brothers were 
raised by their grandmother in the 
Kambi Garba District of Kenya. 
Her father lives far away from them 
and sends money when he can. 
Zaituna sees her father once a year. 
She sees her mother a little more 
frequently, but because her mother 
spends her time looking for food, 
Zaituna learned to rely on her 
grandmother and her brothers for 
support.

“If I were not at Daraja, I would 
have been married since in our 
culture, if a girl reaches the age of 
fourteen, she is ready and matured 
for marriage,” Zaituna said. Focused 
on making the most out of her 
opportunity to attend Daraja, 
Zaituna plans on attending a 
university after graduating from high 
school. “I want to be a surgeon to 
give people second chances in life,” 
she said. “With an education, I can 
give myself the ability to change 
people’s lives.”

Help Zaituna and I reach our goal of $1,000!!! I think we can do it, "Z" KNOWS we can do it. With your help anything is possible.
