BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: RACE FOR DARAJA | BAY TO BREAKERS 2015

EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015

THE STORY:

"I am working hard to become a surgeon."

The Kenyan government only provides free access to education through the primary grades (K-8). Beyond primary school, students or their families must pay all fees associated with their schooling. Countless bright, eager students are kept from furthering their education simply they cannot pay these fees.

Meet Mellab.

Since her mother passed away, Mellab has been working to prove to her father the value of education. In Primary School, Mellab served as the head girl and because her family couldn't afford to go to secondary school, she repeated her final year until she was accepted to Daraja.

At Daraja, Mellab is known for her strong-will. As the oldest in her class, she brings an independence that inspires her younger sisters. Mellab loves the tight-nit community at Daraja between students, staff, and teachers. She is working hard to achieve her dream of becoming a surgeon.

Please consider supporting Mellab as she runs to raise money for her own education on May 17th in Kenya, while many Daraja supporters are running in the annual San Francisco Bay to Breakers race in solidarity.

Separated by an ocean. United by a cause.
