Daraja means “Bridge” and YOU are Daraja
This project started as a school and has evolved into a movement. Carr Educational Foundation has a limited staff, making our volunteers and advocates a vital part of the growing process. There are a number of ways to help, the most important step is to start.
“In September 2009 Boulder’s Daraja supporters got together to throw a benefit and spread the word about the amazing work being done at Daraja Academy. With about 100 people in attendance, including founders Jason and Jenni Doherty, the Boulder community opened their hearts to the incredible and inspiring work unfolding at Daraja. The money raised at that event helped welcome a second class of girls to Daraja Academy. Once you hear of the passion Jason and Jenni have for the young women of Kenya, you can’t help but become a part of their dream. Looking back over the past year and knowing all of the important strides Daraja has made since September it’s hard to believe what has happened: new class of students, dorms being built, water supply in place, computer room, etc. The girls of Daraja are so lucky to be a part of this ground breaking program. Well done, Daraja Academy! Boulder is here for you!”
