Come Together Widows and Orphans Organization (CTWOO) is a non-profit making Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) founded by Dianah Kamande, a young widow and a survivor of Gender Based Violence whose experiences gave birth to the idea of creating a safe space within which widows could share experiences and draw support from others. In 2013 she, togerther with other widows, formed a Community Based Organization which later blosomed into a national NGO. She now leads CTWOO which focuses on widows, orphans and survivors of Gender Based Violence. The organization supports and champions for the advancement of their rights, social and economic empowerment in recognition that widows rights are human rights.
We shall achieve this vision by putting in place strategies and policies that ensure that widows’ rights are guaranteed and protected, that they are economically, socially and politically empowered and that they live fulfilled lives.
A society in which social justice, human rights, happiness and prosperity are guaranteed for every widow in Kenya.
