Widows and Orphans Development Foundation

Human rights awareness and advocating against harmful traditional practices

WODF sensitizes widows and rural communities on the human rights of widows so as to prevent violation of such rights and take action whenever they are violated.

It advocates against traditional cultural practices that perpetuate injustice against widows such as widow cleansing which violates the dignity of a widow, disinheritance issues, property grabbing, and related issues.

The organization will establish information centres in selected villages which will serve as resource centres and platforms for rural widows to receive and share information concerning human rights, sexual and reproductive health, as well as available opportunities for their empowerment.
