BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: Race for Daraja 2013

EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013

THE STORY:

May 19th is a very important day for me. It is the day of the the Bay to Breakers, a San Francisco's most famous race and Daraja Academy's largest annual fundraiser... more importantly it is the only time that the girls of Daraja Academy actually get to help raise awareness and money for the school they love!

As the race begins in the foggy San Francisco morning, the students begin to run in the Kenyan dusk. Happy and full of purpose because of their role on this important day.

I am partnered with Ann, a bright caring girl from Northern Kenya. She is in her 3rd year at Daraja and dreams of bringing change to the north and her tribe, the Rendille. 

Please help Ann and I as we run for girls education! Because I know in my heart of hearts that Ann and her her classmates will make a big, BIG difference in this world. 

Ann comes from a very dry mountainous 
area 8 hours directly north of Daraja 
Academy in Northern Kenya where her 
father raises goats and sheep and her 
mother tries to sell fruit in the local market.  
She is one of five children.  Ann had a 
sincere desire to pursue her education even 
when her classmates told her that due to 
her poverty she would never make it to 
secondary school, and her parents wore 
worried expressions on their face the closer 
she got to her exam time.  Ann knew that 
she could do it and scored number one in 
her class, surprising everyone!

Ann is warm, and ready with a smile at any 
moment.  She studies diligently, and gives 
her all to every task she does including her 
chores. She wants to be a lawyer so that she 
can “judge fairly”.

Ann and I thank you for your support,

Jenni Doherty - Founder of Daraja Academy
