Kanya Widows meet twice a month in Tinganga to support each other and the families of all the members. They provide food and some books to meet the basic needs of the children of the members, many of whom struggle to support their families on only one income, especially when the women often have their children to care for.

Formed in 2009, Kanya Widows has 30 members – mostly women but a few men who have lost their spouse.

The group has a committee of 7 members, six women and one man. They meet twice a month in Tinganga with the aim of supporting each other and the families of all the members. They provide food and some books to meet the basic needs of the children of the members, many of whom find it difficult to support their families on only one income, especially when the women often have their children to care for.

They hope to raise enough money one day to be able to send the children to school, as currently they can’t afford the school fees but for now they can only cover the basic needs of the children and do what they can.
