Did you know the Kenyan school year runs January through November? In Kenya, high school seniors spend the month of November taking a grueling three-week exam; after which, their education is officially over.
Daraja takes things one step further.
Daraja graduates return to campus after their exam for the 4-month Transition Program, the final bridge between academics and real life. Participants learn practical life skills and career preparation that they can’t get from their villages—such as opening a bank account, personal budgeting, business plan writing, and more. They cap the program with a formal internship that launches girls into their college majors and careers.
At the conclusion of Transition, Daraja holds a day-long graduation celebration. A celebration that didn’t happen this year due to Covid.
You are invited to join us for a virtual graduation to celebrate the Class of 2019 (Transition in 2020). Every single graduate in this class has been accepted into college. We can’t wait to see what they accomplish!
