Daraja Academy is a free four-year boarding secondary school for girls in Nanyuki, Kenya. In 2009, 26 girls began their high school educations with the help of teachers, sponsors, and the love of many of you. This year, the first graduating class prepares for the future, and 104 students continue to learn, challenge the state of education for girls, and to dream of becoming journalists, educators, accountants, and world leaders.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu says, "Daraja Academy is changing girls' lives!"
