Did You Know?
- In many cultures widows not only are considered inferior to their husbands, but they also become “useless” at the moment of their husband’s death.
- Millions of the world’s widows have to cope with poverty, ostracism, violence, homelessness, ill- health and different forms of discrimination, which could dramatically impact their physical and mental well-being.
We are determined to break this cruel cycle.Please make a difference by giving widows in Africa a chance to own a sewing machine. One sewing machine will benefit at least 3 children and 7 other family members in each household.
Each sewing machine and training will cost at least £60. Our target is to provide training for 1000 widows and purchase 1000 sewing machines and by the end of 2018.Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!
“No woman should lose her status, livelihood or property when her husband dies, yet millions of widows in our world face persistent abuse, discrimination, disinheritance and destitution.”
