Grauer Girl Rising Club Presents Empowerment Café Night

From Alicia Tembi, Girl Rising Club Mentor:

On Thursday, March 7, the Girl Rising Club hosted a Cafe Night in collaboration with Visual and Performing Arts Department to raise money for Daraja Academy, an all girls boarding school in Kenya. Daraja provides a quality secondary education to young girls, who would be otherwise unable to continue their education. The evening started with an incredibly moving film made by Tristan C. '20 about Grauer's Kenya Expedition that visited Daraja in September. The student performances and visual art were powerful, and the positive feeling in the room was contagious.

Thank you to everyone who performed, attended, and helped make the event possible, with special thanks to Sophie S. '20, president of the Girl Rising club, for spearheading the event. Huge thanks to Isaac Langen, Tom Hopper, Erin Langen and Jake Kelsoe - it would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of these individuals. Special shoutout to Clayton Payne and his band, The Liquorsmiths, for performing and supporting Daraja. 

The Girl Rising Club has a goal of raising $2,500 this year, enough money to sponsor a girl for one year at Daraja. If you would like to contribute to the fundraising campaign, please see the Girl Rising Go Fund Me page. We appreciate all the support.
