Association of Widows & Orphans

A project in Burkina Faso where women expand their knowledge of their community while providing them with tools to build their own small businesses.

As a cooperative of 80+ widow, they work and invest in life together to build a stronger future for their orphaned children. The women retail most of their products, such as soap, peanut butter, jam and much more. At their gatherings they expand their knowledge of community health promotion, food security and nutrition, literacy, numeracy and inter-faith prayer.
