COME TOGETHER WIDOWS AND ORPHANS ORGANIZATION

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.

MEET DIANAH KAMANDE - THE FOUNDER CTWOO

In 2013 Dianah Kamande formed a Community Based Organization which later blossomed 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. Her passion is to ensure that the society treats widows, orphans and other vulnerable groups with dignity.

She believes in the words of the Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon “No woman should lose her status, livelihood or property when her husband dies, yet million of widows in our world face persistence abuse, discrimination, disinheritance and destitution. Many widows are subjected to harmful practices such as Widow burning and “widow cleansing” – an abhorrent  ritual which often amounts to rape, increases the widows risk of HIV infection. The impacts are also felt by widows children and their dependents”
