BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: RACE FOR DARAJA | BAY TO BREAKERS 2015

EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015

THE STORY:

“In Kenya, people think girls can’t do much, but my education will make a better future for me, and I will excel.”

The Kenyan government only provides free access to education through the primary grades (K-8). Beyond that, 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 Edith.

Edith, who is known around campus by her big smile, is from Western Kenya. She lives with her mother, who is a casual laborer. Edith spends much time over school breaks working with HIV positive children to encourage them to continue life as normal and not let their illness stop them from their achieving their dreams.


At Daraja, Edith’s favorite subjects are English and Swahili as her dream is to become a journalist. One of her favorite aspects of Daraja is how girls from tribes all over Kenya come together, live in harmony, and learn about tribes they previously knew nothing about. Edith is an avid member of the revue (drama) club and writing group. She isn’t an athlete, but is excited to learn how to play volleyball and netball.

Please consider supporting Edith 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.
