My name is Paige Woolman and I'm running the Bay to Breakers race to benefit the Daraja Academy in Kenya. Daraja is a free secondary school for impoverished girls with amazing potential to better their lives and the lives of others. Your donations will go both directly to providing the students with tools they need to reach their goals and to help me travel to the campus this June.
Faith Kiio, one of the inspiring freshmen girls at Daraja, will be running the equivalent of the Bay to Breakers race on the campus in Kenya on May 20th. Faith dreams of becoming a doctor, and pledges to "treat all people equally, unlike the doctors in Kenya today." Together our efforts will raise funds and awareness for Daraja Academy and provide access to a wonderful future for Faith.
No donation is too small: just 25 dollars can pay for a full backpack for a Daraja girl. If donating isn't right for you right now, simply pass along the word of this amazing school to friends and family. It makes all the difference in the world.
To the left I have attached a short video made by award-winning filmmaker Barbara Rick, called "Girls of Daraja". Share it with your friends!
