BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: Race for Daraja 2013

EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013

Jason Doherty

THE STORY:

Once upon a time there was a dream… a simple dream: to provide smart, dedicated young ladies a quality high school education. That dream became a cause and it was spoken about in living rooms, classrooms and grocery store check-out lines in San Rafael, California. As more people talked about it the cause became a movement and the movement became a school.

Half a world away, there was a dream… a simple dream: to receive a quality high school education. For Silvia, that dream became a reality when she reported as a freshman at Daraja Academy in February 2011. Now her dream is even simpler, like the rest of her classmates, on May 19th Siliva will run the Kenyan version of the Bay to Breakers (San Francisco’s iconic”mini-marathon”) as a way of raising awareness and funds for the school she loves – DARAJA ACADEMY.

Silvia and I are fund raising teammates this year, and we are getting VERY close to hitting our fund raising goal of raising $2,000. Please help these two dreamers hit that mark.

Donate what you can: $10, $25, $50… anything you can. Pass the word on to your friends and I promise that every penny will go towards providing Silvia and her classmates an incredible education and making this school even better than it already is! 

Before you learn a little more about Silvia, let me thank you in advance for joining 

Silvia's Bio -

Silvia is the sixth born in a family of seven 
children. She comes from an area in 
Southwestern Kenya, very near the Ugandan 
border. Silvia has a sincere desire for 
education. Even though none of her other 
siblings went to school beyond 6th grade, 
Silvia knew that education was the way to a 
better life. The family comes from a very 
poor background, so much so that Silvia 
never owned a pair of school shoes and 
often went to school barefoot.

She has so much 
hope and belief in the power of education. 
She has a sincere desire, and talks about her 
desire, to better her life and others through 
education. It is no surprise she wants to be 
a teacher.

 

CONCLUSION

The miracle behind the Bay to Breakers - Daraja Academy fund raiser lies in the fact that the Daraja students get to actively raise money for their school. At the same moment that the race begins in San Francisco all 128 students will begin their run on the school's campus in Kenya. Please help Sylvia and I reach our goal.

Asante Sana (thank you very much),

Jason Doherty

Founder of Daraja Academy
