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. We provide our students with full scholarships and resources to be critical thinkers, progressive leaders, and architects of their futures. The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services allowing students to focus on academic and personal development.
As little as 50% of girls throughout Kenya progress from primary to secondary school because of disease, poverty, and lack of school facilities. Compound that with the reality that more than half of Daraja's students are orphaned and from rural Kenya, and it makes graduating secondary school for this group nothing short of a miracle. Upon graduation, they will be empowered young women with the capacity, experience and global understanding to be Kenya's future leaders.
