Charitable Objectives

To promote the equality of women, in particular widows, where they suffer discrimination through law or practice by providing information, advocacy and support services to promote their rights and entitlements as equal citizens.

Our vision is to see, in all countries where widowhood is an issue, particularly in areas of conflict, federations of widows’ associations, which will ensure that widows’ voices are heard by their governments, so that every widow is protected by law from discrimination, violence and abuse, and can enjoy her full human rights as an equal and valuable member of society.
