OUR AIM

We hope that through our work, fewer widows will be wrongfully stripped of their own property after the death of their husband. We believe that these widows have a right to their inheritance, and we will fight to help them obtain it, as well as the financial support that they need. What’s more, we want to give both widows and orphans access to the resources that they need for their day-to-day lives, so that they are able to go on with their lives without being looked down upon.

We also want to tackle the social discrimination that these widows face. Women are not just the property of their husbands; they are people in their own right, and deserve to be treated as such. By looking at the reasons why widows face such discrimination, and educating people there about the right way to treat these widows, we hope that Widows Affairs International can bring about a new era of understanding and compassion. These women don’t need to be looked down upon and deprived of what they are rightfully owed. Instead, they need to be helped through this difficult time- and our staff will be there for them every step of the way.
