I'm running with Naomi!

Naomi and I are running 12 kilometers on opposite sides of the world in support of girls education. Any money we raise goes directly to Daraja Academy in Kenya and Naomi's education. Thank you for your help! or as they say in Kenya, ASANTE SANA!

Naomi is from Marsabit county where she lives with her father and her two younger siblings. Because her father is ill and doesn’t have a job, Nancy has a lot of responsibility at home. She took care of the house and watched her siblings throughout primary school, while at the same time finding it hard to do homework because their house has no power. Their water source is also so far from their home that they have to travel by donkey to reach it. Despite these hardships, however, Naomi loves her community. She also loves the students and teachers that she has met at Daraja and enjoys activities such as basketball, music, and drama. She hopes to one day attend Kenyatta University and become an electrical engineer.
