Marsabit Women Advocacy and Development Organisation (MWADO)

County: Marsabit
Marsabit Women Advocacy and Development Organization
(MWADO) is a women-led indigenous organisation based in Marsabit County, Kenya.

Established in 2003, MWADO works to ensure that no girl is subjected to child marriage or FGM by seeking justice for affected girls and sensitising communities on the effects of both practises.

The organisation also offers career guidance, counselling, training, and small grants to empower girls. 
MWADO takes on dozens of cases each week, ranging from sexual assault and domestic violence to disputes over child support, land rights, and cattle raiding.
