Support for Widows
Karma-based worldviews often attribute blame for a husband's death to the bad karma of his wife. It was this attitude that led to the practice of Sati (widow burning).
Widows are unable to remarry and are often viewed as a curse on their family and village. They are often marginalized and considered a curse to their family and community.
Enabled has established a range of programs to support widows including community-based savings programs, and income enhancement projects including access to improved varieties of seeds and a goat breeding initiative.
