By Our Reporter

Enyuaata E Maa Development Organization (EMADO) director Anne Pulei completed her 300 kilometres charity walk from Najile in Kajiado West to Loitoktok in Kajiado South.

The walk, that took 13 days, was meant to create awareness on human rights, raise funds for the construction of a two floors girls’ dormitory and also to raise fees for Osiligi Odede Girls Rescue Center that has been supporting girls rescued from FGM and early marriages.

Pulei has turned her three roomed house to a dormitory and sold her car and livestock to put up the centre.

“The number of girls being rescued is increasing rapidly and I do not have space to accommodate them. The walk had a lot of challenges .We were rained on and passed through forests and parks inhabited by wildlife. We feared for our lives but managed to finish the walk,” she said.

She further revealed that she got swept by floods on her way to Najile but got rescued. Unfortunately, she lost the money she had withdrawn from a bank in Ngong.

The walk received support from locals, including FGM and early marriage survivor Activist Nancy Milanoi, who were ready to take a walk with her for some kilometers.

The team was received by Kajiado South district Deputy County Commissioner Wesley Koech who promised to visit the Najile rescue centre.

Pulei had lost a lot of money through floods during Covid-19 period.

Her foundation has received support from Bev and Beth, Madison Lama from the US and other sponsors but the Covid-19 that locked the world cut off fundings from many supporters.
