Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but no means to continue their education. The academy provides full scholarships, covering all the costs of school in addition to shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services, allowing students to focus on their academic and personal potential, without being hindered by the everyday barriers of poverty.
The academy believes change occurs in a developing country through the people themselves. Daraja Academy has been established to provide young Kenyan women the tools to create change and become the country’s future leaders.
