The Widows
  • Hellen purchased some land and has created a village for widows to live in and raise up their children happily. This land also houses a school which she has built for the children.

  • In the Maasai culture, young women are often married to older men, increasing the likelihood of being widowed.

The Community​

With the help of donors, she drilled a borehole which the community has access to. This has reduced the long distance in which they used to walk in search of water and the risk of the women being killed by wild animals.
