Like many rural women worldwide, the majority of women in Kenya spend hours each day hauling water for her family to drink and wash, as well as for their livestock and crops.
Women are still engaged in traditional roles as mothers and family caregivers. Men may be able to move out of the community for economic opportunities, but women are more likely to remain home to care for children and elderly or sick family members.
Women often have limited or no control over family finances and assets. In many communities, women are underrepresented in community politics, and therefore have little influence over community strategies for adapting policies that support women’s rights and priorities.
Widows of Worth aims to be a voice to women in some of the communities in Western Kenya.
