Daraja Fever Spotlight: Woodside Priory School
Daraja Academy’s roots are deeply embedded in Woodside Priory. Back in 2008, at the small college prep campus in Portola Valley, the first ever Daraja fundraiser was held, supported almost entirely by the school’s students, teachers and administration. It was the first time that our dream of supporting intelligent, driven Kenyan girls from material poverty through high school, was spoken out loud to a group of more than a dozen people.
It is likely that without the Priory’s the generous hospitality, Daraja Academy wouldn’t have opened its doors to its first class of students in 2009. In 2012, a group of sixteen Woodside Priory students visited Daraja Academy for the purpose of cultural interchange and community service.
Fittingly, in 2015 the school invited Daraja Academy to take part in yet another first… for three weeks in April, Daraja Academy students, Alice and Abdia, attended classes at Woodside Priory!
Thank you to Woodside Priory continuing to support Daraja and hosting our girls!
