The inspiration is a couple of many things, first of all I felt led by God, and secondly the foundation is rooted in kindness.Kindness driven to put a smile on the faces of women that thought they had lost hope and thirdly, I know there are couple of NGO’s around the country but I have realised that less attention is paid to under privileged widows and I am very specific with the term ‘under privilege’ because there are widows that are privileged so apparently their husband left something for them, then I have heard from my friends who are victims of what they have gone through from the hands of the family they got married to as a result of them being widows.Primarily, it is sad that we are in a society that doesn’t recognize the role of women in impacting the nation, especially the economy.In this regard, I would say that is the starting point.When you talk to them, they keep telling you, ‘madam make I chop first, make my children chop first before we think of school’.So that drives me; even if it is the basic education with the support of people to send them back to school; at least they should get the basic knowledge of primary and then maybe another organisation takes up their secondary education.
