  • Organisation

    Kakamega County Widows Empowerment Project was established in 2016 as a community based organisation by a group of widows and persons living with disabilities who identified the need to come together and make a change. The organisation empowers women, widows and disabled persons to realise their full potential, worth and strength through empowerment and advocacy activities. Women and disabled persons are vulnerable to poverty, economic instability, Gender Based Violence, discrimination, or denied access to health services and land rights. These are largely contextual but also indicative of the widespread situation in western Kenya.
