Grauer Girl Rising Club

The Grauer School’s Girl Rising Club, founded in 2013, is a female empowerment organization that has sponsored many years worth of education for girls and boys around the globe. We are a tight-knit group of passionate high school students that learn about the struggles that affect the women in our community and in developing countries.

This year, the Girl Rising club will be donating to Daraja Academy in Kenya. Daraja Academy is a boarding secondary school for Kenyan girls living in poverty. All Daraja girls have unique potential and this school is their only chance at a secondary education. Daraja is one of the first completely free boarding secondary schools for girls in all of East Africa. Providing a boarding situation allows the girls to separate themselves from difficult issues at home and concentrate fully on obtaining the best education possible. We will be sponsoring one year’s worth of education for a Daraja girl.

Please help us reach our goal and spread the word! After all, if we can just help one girl...

With love,

The Grauer Girl Rising Club and Daraja Academy
