Widows are usually very poor. They are too old or can’t afford to repair their modest huts  and they are often caring for several grandchildren where the parents have died.  With just a little help their lives, and those of the children, can be transformed.

W.O.R.K has:
• Formed groups of widows for protection and sustainability.  One group is now self-sufficient and no longer needs any support.

Marinda widows + sheep
• Provided cows, goats, sheep and chickens for widows so they can feed their family and make a little money.




• Set up an accounting system, known as “Table Banks”, which gives the widows the opportunity to buy seed or start a small business so that they can support themselves and their grandchildren.  This is a very successful scheme which is enabling very poor people to become self-sufficient.

• Built many homes for widows and re-built and re-roofed many over the years.
