WIDOWS PLIGHT

Africa is one of the largest continent in the world with a large population of about 1.33 Billion (according to World Population Review ). The Africa culture is unique and dynamic irrespective of religious background.

African men are dynamic and energetic which has made them to always cater for the needs of the family even apart from the biblical injunctions that man is the head of the family.

In Africa, men are to provide basic essentials needs of life (clothing, shelter, food etc.) women wait for their husbands to bring food and comfort to the family, so what happens when the men are taken away by death? What happens to the woman and the kids? The future is shattered and destroyed.

A complete, happy and vibrant woman that loses the husband becomes a widow. Africa widow’s situation is most pathetic and precarious. A typical African widow is left to suffer with the kids in the faith of hope, that one day a helper will come. The Foundation has been able to identify the enormous challenges faced by Africa widows thereby associating with them in other to share their numerous problems.

Elizabeth foundation has done much for the widows and orphans in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. The challenges are great, the task are enormous but we will keep forging ahead solving the numerous problem of widows, orphans and the less privileged in our society.

 

THE ORPHANAGE

In-line with God's command women are entrusted with the sole responsibility of making home, instilling good values on the children and in some cases compliment the effort of the husband in putting food on the table.

The Orphanage home is designed and structured to provide basic social and educational facilities to the students.
