BENEFITING: Daraja Education Fund

EVENT: RACE FOR DARAJA | BAY TO BREAKERS 2015

EVENT DATE: May 17, 2015

THE STORY:

"I will be an entrepeneur."

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 Zaituna

Zaituna and her two brothers were raised by their grandmother since her father lives far away from them and their mother works all day. If it weren’t for Daraja, Zaituna would have been married young since it is rare for girls in her culture to be single past the age of fifteen.

Zaituna is focused on making the most out of her opportunity to attend Daraja and is interested in many things. Her favorite subjects are History, English, and Business and she loves to learn about social issues. In her free time, she loves to read mystery novels and dance. Her favorite times during the week are WISH (Women of Integrity, Strength, and Hope) class and clubs time, where she gets to participate in the Science and Conservation Club. When asked what her favorite part about Daraja is, she reports that she cannot decide, she loves it all. 

Please consider supporting Zaituna 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.
