Penpal Update

For the last couple of months, we have been doing a pen pal system where each person in the GC is partnered up with a girl in Daraja. We are also trying to do more calls with our GC partner in order to keep in touch with them more frequently. Below we can see...

Our Projects

Our projects include the Annual Run for Rights.

The goal of the Run For Rights event is to raise money and awareness for the girls. It is a drop-in run, in which people may enter at leisure with friends and family, walking, running, or biking the track. The run is to show community and advocacy and get people to know what it feels like to have to fight (run) for their rights.

The Daraja trip is a unique experience and everyone’s invited!

Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school that predominantly self-functions. It is for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but no means to continue their education.

Meet the students and help out in daily life of the school.
