Welcome to the official website of the Widows and Orphans Movement.
We are a Non-Profit Organisation focused on helping alleviate the plight of widows and orphans in the Northern region of Ghana.
Our website aims impact in the following ways;
- share relevant information about our nonprofit activities and programs
- communicate and reach out to volunteers and donors
- share our stories and the stories of the various people being impacted by our programs
- showcase the various handicrafts made by the widows and orphans through our income generation and empowerment programs
Widows and their children represent one of the most vulnerable and overlooked groups in Ghanaian society. While many organizations are committed to addressing the needs of women in general, no organization tackles the unique and overwhelming struggles facing the widow in Northern Ghana.
As the only organization developed by and for widows in Northern Ghana, WOM is the most effective organization to address the issues of empowerment and capacity building of widows in Northern Ghana.
