Help Educate and Empower Women: The Carr Educational Foundation - Daraja Academy

UniversalGiving is thrilled to announce our new partnership with The Carr Educational Foundation- Daraja Academy!

Founded by a Bay Area couple, The Carr Educational Foundation works to provide a transformative education to gifted African girls who would otherwise have few opportunities for a better life. The Foundation’s first school, the Daraja Academy in Kenya, offers students not only traditional classes, but also an education in areas such as sustainable gardening, sex education, and women’s empowerment so that, by the time they leave the school, girls have to tools to reach out to their communities and improve their life and their society. On top of all that- the school is the first free school in East Africa offering secondary education to girls!
