Summary

This project will provide $20 monthly support, to 20 poor widows each in Anambra State. The widowhood condition is a very stressful and devastating one, exposing women to psychological and physical abuse. In Nigeria, widows are being maltreated and face a lot of challenges like denial of property rights, rape, forced marriages, disinheritance etc. Raising at least $500 every month for this project, will help us keep it alive and we'll increase the number of the beneficiaries with more donations.

Challenge

The period after the death of one's husband is supposed to be a time when the widows should be assisted, to withstand the emotional trauma, pain and frustration associated with the loss of their husbands. Unfortunately in Nigeria, widows are being maltreated and face a lot of challenges like denial of property rights, rape, forced marriages, disinheritance, leading to stress, depression, loss of self-esteem, poverty, making them unable to take good care of themselves and their children.

Solution

All donations to this project will go towards supporting these 20 poor widows with $20 each every month. We look forward to raising at least $500 dollars every month, in order to achieve this and with more donations, we'll increase the number of the beneficiaries, in order to accommodate more widows.

Long-Term Impact

These widows will be financially stable to take proper care of themselves and their children, without having to feel the impact of the loss of their husbands so much.
