We are setting up the Widows Scholarship Fund to assist the widows in Kenya with tuition for their children. 15% of the population is Kenya are estimated to be widows. This group of unnoticed women have been devistated by the impact of COVID19 on their communities and jobs. We have a coordinated group of projects and local community support groups that are working to empower this segment of society and educate them in business skills, soap manufacturing, agriculture, baking, poultry, retail sales and textile production. These support programs enable them to create businesses that sustain their families and rise above the many challenges they are facing. This fund will provide 600 dollar scholarships for the children of widows involved in the Widows Social Empowerment (WSE) program and provide relief from this annual expense while they are building their businesses. We are targeting 30 students this year with more request coming in every day
I added the first applicants Aaron, Rebeccah, Victor, Cynthia, and Winnie all High school in dire need.
I want to thank you ahead of time for your generosity and willingness to make a change in the hearts of the under served people in Kenya!
