Programs

The Carr Educational Foundation's inaugural and primary program, the Daraja Academy, is located outside the village of Nanyuki, Kenya. The Daraja Academy is a free boarding school for high school girls with no other means to attend secondary school. The student body represents most of Kenya's major tribes and religious sects. In addition to teaching the Kenyan Curriculum Standards, Daraja Academy provides room and board for its students, numerous campus clubs, interaction with international volunteers, a functioning farm, and a safe, clean, challenging learning environment. The Daraja Academy is unique in its goal to educate the whole person, with an emphasis on choosing girls who have demonstrated potential who would otherwise be denied the chance at a secondary education. The mission of the Daraja Academy is to provide a quality secondary education to exceptional Kenyan girls because educated girls can transcend poverty and change the world.
