This year the seventh grade class is organizing a fun run in Leadership class that many of you may remember from last year. Run with Daraja: United Across an Ocean is designed to raise money for Meldah, a Kenyan girl, to go to Daraja Academy. Last year, the Orchard House community raised $3,615, so this year we have chosen to raise the bar and have a goal of $5,000! That's enough money to pay for Meldah’s room, board, and tuition for two years. Daraja Academy is an all-girls high school that is much like Orchard House. It helps girls find their voices and has classes that are a lot like Orchard House’s Leadership classes. It provides an education for girls whose families cannot afford their education. The run will take place in Byrd Park on April 26. We hope to see you there!
