Mission Statement

Daraja Education Fund operates a Kenyan NGO called Daraja Academy. The academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls with top academic scores and exceptional leadership skills but lack the financial means to continue their education.

Daraja provides students with full scholarships and resources to be critical thinkers, progressive leaders, and architects of their futures.

The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare, and counseling services to allow students to fully focus on academic and personal development.

Description

The academy was named a 2012 partner of Nike’s Girl Effect, recognizing Daraja as one of the most innovative organizations focused on conquering gender equality in the world.

Thus far Daraja Academy has experienced very exciting results. In the three graduating classes, 63 out of 76 graduates have or will proceed to college or university with government assistance due to their grades on the Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education examination.
