We're cheerleading for Damaris as she runs for girls’ education in Kenya!
Damaris is a sophomore at Daraja Academy, a free secondary school in Kenya for exceptional girls who can’t afford to continue their education. Damaris and the rest of the Daraja girls are running their own version of San Francisco’s “Bay to Breakers” race on campus in Kenya this May. Damaris is running to fundraise for Daraja Academy, so that she and other girls like her can receive the education they deserve!
Damaris is from Kitui, and says that when she didn’t know how to pay her school fees, she felt ashamed and didn’t know what to do. Now that she is at Daraja, she says that she is learning how to stand in front of people with courage, and enjoys debate club. Her dream career is to become an auditor, so that she can support her community.
We are cheerleading Damaris’s efforts from afar by fundraising for Daraja Academy in her honor.
Please help Damaris support her school! Thank you so much.
