EMPOWERING WIDOWS IN KENYA: HOW YOUR SUPPORT CHANGED LIVES
Updated: May 25
We have a story that will fill your heart with joy and inspiration. It's the story of how your support and generosity helped us achieve a significant milestone in our Widow's Might project. Thanks to your contributions, we empowered 20 widows in Kenya with clean and sustainable green energy through solar kits, empowering them to build a better future for themselves and their families.
Our mission was to bring hope and 'good energy' to these women who have faced unimaginable hardships after some lost their husbands and even their children, with some leaving behind young grandchildren that need care. These widows are left to provide for their families without basic amenities like security and a steady income. We knew we had to do something to help them, so we launched the Widow's Might project.
SELECTING 20 WIDOWS TO BENEFIT FROM OUR PROGRAM
We carefully selected 20 widows who would be the first of many widows we plan to help. Our goal was to introduce clean energy through solar kits, empowering these women to swap out fossil fuels like kerosene for solar energy. The joy and excitement on the faces of these widows were priceless when we finally delivered the solar kits in Kenya. We were moved by the expressions of gratitude and appreciation for the kind donations that made this possible.
PROVIDING RELIABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
The solar kits will go a long way in providing these widows with a reliable and
sustainable source of clean ‘Good Energy’, improving their living conditions and ability to provide for themselves and their families. The installation of the solar kits is ongoing in the homes of each widow that received a kit. It's an incredible
moment for us and we're happy to share it with all our donors
BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE FOR WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES
At the heart of the Widow's Might project is a desire to uplift and empower women who have struggled to make ends meet and be safe in their homes and communities. We believe in supporting them in overcoming their challenges, and we're grateful to be able to make a real difference in their lives. We want to empower these women to take control of their lives and build a better future for themselves and their communities.
The potential of green energy can change not only their lives but also their families lives. Access to safe and reliable power is a challenge, and green energy initiatives are helping to bring light and hope to those who need it most. These projects provide widows with the tools and information they need to use green energy, providing safe and sustainable electricity, and the opportunity for women to take control of their lives and build a better future for themselves and their families. The societal impact of green energy initiatives is incredible, and it's encouraging that we have the power to change the world by investing in these solutions.
THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY
We promoted the campaign through our website and social media channels, highlighting the unique stories of each widow and connecting them to potential donors. Through this, we created a sense of community around the campaign. Seeing people coming together to support these women was amazing.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Ordering, assembling, and shipping the solar kits to Kenya was pivotal for our campaign. We could physically see the impact of the donations pouring in. The team at Zhyphen worked tirelessly to assemble each kit with care and precision. As we received updates on the solar kits being packed and loaded onto crates for shipping, we couldn't help but feel a sense of fulfilment and accomplishment. Our dream of bringing renewable energy to disadvantaged communities was becoming a reality.

TOGETHER WE CAN SHARE GOOD ENERGY
The Widow's Might project is a cause that is very dear to us. We strongly believe that widows and their families should have the opportunity to thrive and succeed in their communities. With the provision of solar kits that will power their homes and future businesses, we are inspired by the tireless strength and bravery of these women and their loved ones. We remain dedicated to creating a brighter future for them and are grateful for your support in achieving this noble goal.
