About Me

My name is Hellen Kyambi Kimanzi from Kenya... I am 24years of age. In 2014, i founded Help A awidow Save a Life initiative to economically empower vulnerable widowed women in Kitui County, Kenya. This was a decision informed after my only two sisters lost their husbands in a span of 8 months in 2013. I was disturbed by the struggles they went through to put food on the table. With the help of my big sister, i was able to reach out to other widows in my community. Currently i lead a group of 20 widows whereby we engage in various income generating activities for example goat rearing and basket weaving. I desire to reach out to 70 widows in 10 years to come.
My biggest challenge is insufficient funds to carry out my project to a larger scale.

My Vision

My vision is to find lasting solution to poverty and powerlessness among widowed women in the society.
