Rona Foundation is a widow human rights organisation in Kenya
We champion and advance the rights of women – mostly widows, who continue to suffer exclusion and marginalisation
We promote sustainable environmentally friendly activities such as establishing tree nurseries, building and use of energy-saving stoves. We also educate learners through an intervention dubbed Plant & Play.
Know your rights
We create safe spaces to empower widows through a series of transformative workshops to increase agency - make better decisions.
Through social and economic empowerment programs, we educate and strengthen relations to protect widows from SGBV, increase social capital and provide micro business grants.
Protect & Sustain
We transform structures by collective advocacy at community, county and national level by creating awareness around harmful gender norms, perceptions and attitudes towards widows that deny them their rights, dignity and body autonomy.
Through the Rona Centre in Wagoma, Siaya County, we offer education support, agriculture and health services for the empowerment of rural widows and orphans.
