Their Mission Daraja provides students with full scholarships and resources to be critical thinkers, progressive leaders, and architects of their futures. The academy provides shelter, food, healthcare and counseling services so students may focus on their academic and personal potential without the everyday barriers they would otherwise face. Their groundbreaking educational model has generated a community of students filled with intellectual curiosity and a hunger to learn. Daraja Academy provides an exemplary secondary education to girls who have no other means of continuing school. They choose girls who, despite their circumstances, have earned high grades and give back to their communities. They choose them because every girl has the right to learn. They choose them because the best indicator of leadership potential is the ability to display grit, courage, and kindness when faced with adversity. They choose them because the best disrupters of poverty are those who were born in it. Daraja offers extraordinary leadership education to even more extraordinary girls.
