Daraja Academy provides a safe place for girls who would not have access to a high school education any other way. It is a beacon of hope, safety, and future promise for marginalized girls to grow their innate leadership skills. Daraja provides a rigorous academic program to prepare girls for the KCSE (Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education) national exams and future admission to college and university. But the core program, centered on a culture of peace, distinguishes Daraja from every other high school.

“We are one Kenya”

Students are selected based on need, academic scores, and leadership potential. With a diverse student population from 47 counties, students embody the phrase “We are one Kenya”.
