Zero Violence254 Initiative: The Grand Finale

Zero Violence254: Grand Finale

We Have To Finish Strong!!

That was the message from Kagwiria Mbogori of Kenya National Commission of Human Rights (KNHCR)

Indeed the Zero Violence254 team lived up to this expectation.

John Burke Baidoo, Douglas Kinyua and Douglas Marete defied insurmountable odds to finish the grueling 1,500 km Kwale to Moyale walk in less time than anticipated.

In fact, they completed it 11 days ahead of schedule!

The walk that was supposed to take 60 days was accomplished in less than 49 days.

The team set off on the walk on 15 March 2017 in Kwale and arrived to a heroes welcome in Moyale on 4th May 2017.

Counting The Gains Of The Zero Violence254 Walk

In accomplishing this feat, they have done more to spread awareness about the ‘Protection Against Domestic Violence Act of Kenya than anyone else.

During the walk, they visited dignitaries, school authorities, Heads of NGO’s, the Police fraternity, Women’s Representatives in various Counties and Members of Parliament all of whom signed the ‘I Take A stand Against Violence’ Pledge and supported the campaign in various ways.

It is said a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.

This is only the beginning of the fight against all forms of violence.

#ZeroViolence254 continues!
