Today, a future Daraja girl is sitting in her primary school classroom, wondering if it's the last classroom she will ever sit in. This Giving Tuesday, you can help us reach her.
Each January, the Daraja Academy administration team travels across Kenya to interview potential students. But there are girls we have not yet been able to reach - like those living in remote villages bordering Somalia, Sudan, and Ethiopia. Your Giving Tuesday donations will allow us to travel farther than ever before to give as many girls as possible the opportunity to join Daraja Academy Class of 2021.
Every Daraja girl is given a full scholarship - not a single one of them could have attended high school without this support. When the Class of 2021 arrives on campus, your gift will launch them into a world of education and opportunity. They will receive uniforms, school supplies, books, room & board, and (for many) the first medical and dental appointments of their lives.
Most importantly, they will be given a first-rate education, and be empowered to share their voices with the world. More than just a high school, Daraja Academy prepares its students for college, careers, and leadership. Just look at Marylene, Salula, and Shamsia to see what can be accomplished with a Daraja education.
