THE STORY:

William Gates wrote -

          I am hoping to raise a sum of $250 in a partnership with Carr Educational fund that supports Daraja Academy, a girls school in Kenya that helps continue the education of gifted young women that would not have the means to fulfill their educational potential otherwise.  Daraja provides a quality secondary education to gifted young women because they believe that "educated girls can transcend poverty and change the world." 

          I will be partnering with Franca Leparkiras, a ninth grader at Daraja who will be running the same distance at me on campus in Kenya. Franca is 16 years old, who is passioniate about becoming a doctor or lawyer so that she can help people all over the world, but especially in Kenya.  Franca loves poetry and is extremely passionate about her education and recognizes the great opportunity she has been presented in Daraja Academy.  She wrote this poem:   “Education is like a flower, growing in the garden, to be nurtured and cultivated, in every possible way.”  

Please help me raise money for Franca and Daraja, no donation is too small!
