Mariarita Collina, (far left with red hair in the first picture), has shown just how creative one can be to help support the funding need for Daraja. Mariarita, who is a native-Italian and the mother of Giulia Lukach, who sits on Daraja’s advisory board, has taken to the kitchen to raise funds. In the last month she has baked and sold cookies in Tuscany and has hosted several cooking classes, with all proceeds going to the Daraja Academy. This Roman native has shown how truly global the interest is in getting the girls at Daraja educated. Great inspiration Mariarita!
