EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2014

Alice Ng

THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Alice and just completed a six-day climb of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park to raise funds and awareness for girls’ education. Scaling the 3,000 foot vertical wall through the week had me climbing through extreme heat and near freezing temperatures while hauling over 300 lbs of equipment, food and water.

I did this to support Daraja Academy, a secondary boarding school for Kenyan girls of need. Now, what would YOU do to help?

Join me in the “What would you do?” for girls’ education campaign and help us to reach our $20,000 goal. Each dollar you donate will be generously matched by an anonymous Daraja supporter! Click HERE to find out how to join...

Don’t forget to include company matches! If you donate $100 and your company matches with $100, your $100 will grow to $400 with our donor match!

Supporting Girls Education in Kenya

In subsaharan Africa, many families scrape by with meager resources. Many struggle to feed their children and education is a luxury not many can afford. While primary school is paid for by the central government in Kenya, secondary school is not free. Those who can pull together the tuition fees often send their sons while the girls are often married off into other families.

Daraja Academy is a free secondary boarding school that offer girls who have excelled in primary school but have no opportunity to continue their education. Faced with early marriage and a life of poverty, they are given a quality education at Daraja and a chance to build a future for themselves

Please watch the short video about Daraja Academy in my photo gallery and give as generously as you can!
