Update: Livelihood Training for COVID Widows

By Lisa Koonce | Project Coordinator

The Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh based project for the training of COVID widows, in partnership with Vijaya Trust, Aarti Home for Girls, has been temporarily put on hold while WEP's secures additional required funding.

WEP's portion of this project, to provide an amended version of its Leadership Academy, which specifically trains young widows in alternative livelihoods, will be three months long and timed in consideration of the participants additional obligations at home and at work.

While the project remains a priority for WEP and our partner, the Aarti Home, which continues to support the widows and their families in the Kadapa District, the launch of WEP's Academy has been shifted to 2022.

As WEP and our partner continue to assess the needs and our timeline, we look forward to opening the WEP's Academy portion of the project and updating our donors to its progress, as soon as possible.
