I’m running for girls’ education with Madina!
Madina is a freshman at Daraja Academy, a free secondary school in Kenya for exceptional girls who can’t afford to continue their education. I will be running in the Fisherman's Friend Strongman Run in Engelberg, Switzerland on June 2nd, 2018. It's an 18km run with obstacles in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Meanwhile, Madina will be racing on campus in Kenya. Together, we’re running to fundraise for Daraja Academy, so that Madina and girls like her can receive the education they deserve!
Madina is from Tana River, where she spent her days collecting firewood and fetching water, as she couldn’t afford to continue on to secondary school. She says that now “life is really changing,” and she is happy to be a student again. Her favorite sport is netball, and she is a member of the environmental club. When she completes secondary school, she would like to attend Mount Kenya University and become a lawyer.
Please help Madina and me fundraise for her school! Thank you for your support for girls' education and empowerment. I appreciate your contribution to this cause that I am so passionate about.
