THE STORY:

 

The Daraja Academy is a free boarding school in Kenya, created for high school girls whose families cannot afford to pay for their tuition. Those living in poverty cannot afford to pay for a high school education; yet without a high school education, they will never be able to remove themselves from poverty. Thus starts a cycle for families in poverty that will never end. Daraja gives free education, room, activities and meals to girls who they think can succeed. These girls are the top of their class, but do not have the opportunity to succeed as they cannot afford secondary schooling. In Swahili, Daraja means “bridge.” The school is the gateway to opportunity and gives students access to a more promising future.

            In a corner of the world where tribal differences are often barriers to understanding, Daraja is a guide. It brings students representing 19 tribes and many religions together. These girls bond together and form irreplaceable friendships. They are girls who seek learning and possess an unquenchable thirst for knowledge as they take twelve arduous classes each day. In fact, the power generator is only turned on three hours a day so the girls can have night time study hall. They have the intellect and passion to change the world and as a result, these girls too represent a bridge, to the future of Kenya.
