Target demographics: Daraja students are selected from all four corners of Kenya and have excellent academic scores and leadership skills but do not have the financial means to continue their education. Acceptance into Daraja Academy is a positive change for the girls' future.
Geographic areas served: Kenya
Programs: Daraja Academy is one of only a few secondary schools in East Africa that actually interviews its prospective students. Where other schools base their student intake solely on the grades, Daraja has a thorough student selection process that emphasizes recruiting leaders. Our innovative educational model melds the traditionally rigorous Kenyan educational standards with innovative teaching practices like project-based learning (PBL), research field trips and community partnerships. A 13:1 student-teacher ratio means that our students enjoy the benefits of personalized instruction. In addition to an effective academic curriculum, the academy has four main focus areas: - Female Empowerment - Community Responsibility - Cross-Cultural Education - Personal and Career Development
