Our annual 3K Run/Walk raises awareness about challenges faced by women and girls of African descent.
This year, we are focusing on THE PLIGHT OF AN AFRICAN WIDOW.
When a woman’s husband dies, it is not uncommon for her to face accusations of being responsible for his death; property acquired by the couple during marriage is habitually seized from her; in some cultures she is even forced to marry the late husband’s family member; she is often left to fend for herself and the children with little support. These women suffer psychologically, often feeling alone and abandoned.
Get to know them and hear their stories in 2016. Your participation will help provide support to widows in certain communities.
