BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund
EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015
"I want to become a photographer. If that doesn't work, I would love to be an accountant."
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.
Because of her family's financial struggles, Hannah always doubted the possibility that she would be able to attend secondary school. This didn’t stop her, though, from studying as hard as she could in primary school and scoring very high on her National Exam.
Hannah’s favorite thing about coming to Daraja is knowing she doesn’t have to ever worry about food or be hungry. She’s got a sparkling personality and loves to play sports, especially football (soccer). In her spare time, Hannah enjoys singing and dancing, whether music is playing or not. Her favorite subject is Geography and she is a member of the Grassroots Girls Club on campus. During breaks from school, Hannah volunteers at local hospitals and churches because she believes they are where people need the most help and hope.
Please consider supporting Hannah 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.
