EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013

Sarah Montgomery

THE STORY:

Lisayo comes from a large family of five children. 
She has two brothers and two sisters. She lives 
with her mother as her father passed away 10 
years ago. Since then, her mother has struggled 
to take care of her family as she is not educated 
and as a result finds employment very difficult. It 
was not uncommon for Lisayo and her siblings to 
go to bed with empty stomachs.

Attending primary school was a challenge for 
Lisayo as she had to wake up at 5am everyday to 
walk over four miles to school. One thing that 
has come easily to Lisayo is running. She is an 
extremely gifted athlete who reached provincials 
(equivalent to state finals in the US) in the 1500 
meter run.

One of Lisayo’s favorite parts about Daraja 
Academy is the abundance of resources, 
especially the availability and determination of 
the teachers. Lisayo aspires to become a doctor 
so that she can help prevent and cure diseases 
and knows that she now has the tools to so at 
Daraja Academy.
