AHF was incorporated in January 2017 with a mission to bridge the gap between the cold hands of stigmatization and the financial / economic hardship that plague widows. It is founded with the core objective of shielding and rehabilitating widows from several ordeals peculiar to their situation.
With this in view, we have an ambition to create a conducive setting, where widows can have a relaxing and recreational atmosphere, which will not only foster friendship among women but a mentorship program.
It is our aim to build confidence and hope for widows, by empowering her socially and economically, thus we kick off our foundation with a Walk for Charity, as a commemoration of the International Widow’s Day, which will be an annual exercise that is expected to spread to other states of the federation.
