One of the major issue faced by the surviving families of Fallen Patriots is their high financial vulnerability, the risks of their children dropping out from school, difficulties in following up with their administrative documents, risks of famine, and accessibility to medical care and psychological support.

We are providing seed capital to 40 widows of our Fallen Heroes to start small income generating activities within the National territory, and through which they would be able to earn a living and sustain their family.

We are dedicated to serving the families of service members from all branches, to ensure that every member of his/her family receives all necessary Primary, secondary and college funding. For a more sustainable and fare reaching impact; we are empowering these widows through small income generating activities with the startup seed capital. Through this approach they would regain economic independent be able to take proper care of their families especially in any future emergency situations.
