BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund
Last year, I hosted "A Piece of MY SOLE," my first Contribution Project for my Birthday where I asked my friends to wear TOMS in support of the TOMS Shoe Company One For One Movement. We had over 15 people with TOMS SHOES on which means that our campaign made it possible for 15 children to have brand new shoes which would prevent them from getting soil-transmitted diseases.
My birthday Contribution Project this year is to support the Girl EFFECT http://www.girleffect.org/. I am asking you to celebrate my birthday by surpRISING a girl with a donation for their education. have chosen to raise money for DARAJA Academy. The supRISE theme is in alighnment with m vision for SheRISES- The School of Success for Women. I want to see girls and women of all ages empowered to live the life they've imagined by going confidently in the direction of their dreams. One donation can help a girl do that.
Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but no means to continue their education. The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services which allows students to focus on their academic and personal potential, without being hindered by the everyday barriers of poverty.
My goal is to RAISE $500.
Your donation will help to supply 10 girls with school supplies for the year
