For nearly all of the students, Daraja is the first place they’ve had their very own beds. Unfortunately, our bunk beds are extremely old and falling apart. The metal beds are rickety, unstable, and don’t have rails -- making the top bunks quite scary. The top bunks of the wooden beds have actually collapsed onto girls sleeping on the bottom bunks. Many of the beds no longer stand up on their own, and are wedged between other beds and walls to keep them upright.
