Muungano Wa Wajane



Muungano Wa Wajane (MWW) is a community based organisation that has been working officially with widows since 2012 in Kenya, Widows have been targets of gender based violence, sexual abuse, family disputes that resulted in eviction from property and other holdings, emotional and psychological torture, discrimination and stigma among others.

Our aim is to create a pillar of hope and empowerment for all the widows in Kenya and beyond but with a bigger focus on the poor and neglected widows. We want to help all widows live fulfilled lives by empowering them socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually, through establishment of productive networking structures.


Improve widow’s ability to sustain their livelihoods

In some areas across the country there is diminished food production and lack of opportunities to generate income which results to chronic food crisis. We intend to equip widows with skills that will help them start their own income generating activities and be in a position to come out and even apply for jobs (in cases where they have certificates).

Enable equitable access to health and legal services to widows

We intend to train widows’ on how to access affordable health service as they prioritize their household’s health. By also partnering with NHIF we will be able to provide or subsidize their amount so that they can be able to access healthcare services at an affordable price. We intend to strengthen our partnership with FIDA so that widows all over the country can be able to access affordable or free legal services .

Advocate for the rights of widows to be protected and recognised

We intend to put widows across the country on the grid so that they can be recognised and their input appreciated because their rights are also women’s rights and human rights. We intend to set up widow/women’s rights groups all over the country and work with widow in the communities to encourage them in to work with widows in promoting their rights. We also want to work with the government to develop its first National Plan of Action for widows.

Increasing widow participation and inclusion.

We intend to create open platforms for widows and other women all over the country where they can come together and engage with decision makers on issues that concern them. Through this platforms widows will be trained, empowered, networked and supported. We intend to promote culture through cultural festivals that aim at promoting widows rights, widows’ involvement and widow participation We intend to hold music, arts and sports festivals for widows, other women and their children that promote widows rights.



We are open to new ideas, embrace change and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for widows.


We have set high goals and we are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for widows.


We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results and being accountable to our supporters, partners and most of all the widows.


We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with widows.


We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behaviour; never to compromise our reputation and always act in the best interest of widows.
