I'm running with Gladys!

Gladys 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 Gladys's education. Thank you for your help! or as they say in Kenya, ASANTE SANA!

Gladys is from West Pokot and is seventh of eight children. Her older sisters had been forced to marry, and Gladys’s father wanted to get married as well. When she was in class 6, she got pregnant, and her father was even more insistent that she be married. Fortunately, the rest of her family supported her decision to continue her education. They took over care of her child while she attends Daraja. Gladys loves her life at Daraja because she feels taken care of and accepted. In the future, she would love to start her own business. She also wants to teach other girls what she has learned in Daraja’s empowerment class WISH.
