Please partner with me in donating to the 3rd annual Race for Daraja.
I will be traveling up North to join the Daraja family in running/walking in the Bay to Breakers on May 19th to support Daraja Academy! Last year over 100 Daraja advocates united for a cause - girls' education - and raised almost $100,000.
On the same day Moreen will run an equivalent distance on the Daraja Campus in Kenya. She is thrilled that she is able to participate in raising funds for her own education. I met Moreen 2 years ago when she was a first year student and Iinstantly fell in love with her personality, strength, and independence. She keeps me posted via letters and skype on how she is doing in school - she is very focused, driven and is grateful for everything that Daraja has given to her!
Nike's Girl Effect has recognized Daraja as one of the most effective and innovative organizations focused on conquering gender inequality in the world. Founded by a local, Bay Area couple, Daraja is a unique boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic ability and exceptional leaderships skills but no means to continue their education.
Your donation of any size will help keep these girls in school, which will greatly change their lives.
