We welcome four new board members to the Carr Educational Foundation. The mission of the Carr Educational Foundation is to create sustainable educational models in struggling communities. Daraja Academy is it’s first project.

In 2013, Margaret Pack, Sara Howard, Lisa Halsted, and Erika Merrel joined the board of directors of the Carr Educational Foundation, which currently raises awareness and funds for Daraja Academy initiatives and the work occurring on campus. The addition of these passionate four to our cause is tremendous as they exhibit the qualities of true Daraja women.
