Widow Care

Widow Care - Kakamega - Kenya
In progress
Project Status
In progress

In October of 2014 the Voice of Hope group (VOH) made their first visit to Kakamega. During their time in Kenya they met some beautiful women who, because they are widows, are trying to make a life for themselves and their children without the protection or income that a husband provides. Since that first visit, the team has invested in capital projects (improving homes and living conditions), and in food hampers, tuition, agriculture training and access to business training and microfinance loans for a very grateful group of families.

Latest update

Widow Care continues to bless even after "graduation"

Work continues in two regions, Kakamega District and Siaya District, providing support for 80 families and 137 students, with a total of 310 people being directly impacted by the provision of monthly hampers for the elderly and destitute, school fees for students, medical care, home improvements, adult education and post-secondary education, spiritual growth groups, Bibles in three languages, and audio Bibles for the illiterate.  

To date, the project has ‘graduated’ 20 families into the Alumni program where the women continue to be contacted, receive needed assistance for medical care, and continue to attend women’s meetings where they receive training in improved agriculture techniques, spiritual refreshment and teaching, good fellowship and a sense of sisterhood and support.
