Our Guest Program provides an opportunity for Daraja supporters to experience the school and its surrounding vibrant culture. In addition to immersing themselves into Daraja’s daily life, guests visit nearby wildlife conservancies, cultural centers and successful women-run community projects. Check out our Sample Itinerary (Link to  2015 Guest Program Itinerary) to see what your daily schedule might look like. The Daraja Guest Program is an amazing opportunity to learn about the beautiful country of Kenya and get to know the incredible girls of Daraja Academy!

Our guest program has an 8-day itinerary and a set price of $1,995 per person. Families are welcome – this is a wonderful travel and learning opportunity for all ages.

The goal of the volunteer program is to provide volunteers with an opportunity to share their skill or talent that is missing on Daraja’s campus, while giving them a life-changing cultural immersion experience. The volunteer program is set during specific 1-2 week periods throughout the school year.

Volunteer accommodations include a comfortable yet rustic “banda” with private bathroom and shower and 3 meals a day in our dining hall, at a cost of $50 per day.

We offer internships to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to recent graduates. This is a great opportunity to jumpstart a career in international development, human rights, or education.

Participants can intern for 1-6 months in areas such as computer technology, marketing/communications, or business administration. Interns are welcome to apply year-round.

Throughout the year, the Daraja Education Fund (DEF) office needs volunteers to help with our annual campaign, fundraisers, and a variety of other activities. We value volunteers with many different skillsets and interests! At the moment, we’re particularly looking for people willing to help organize our Bay to Breakers campaign.

The DEF office is located in San Rafael. Please email [email protected] to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
