The Vicious Cycle of Violence and Poverty

In nations where the laws protecting them are not enforced, poverty makes widows and orphans vulnerable to violence, and violence traps them in poverty.

“Violence is as much a part of what it means to be poor as being hungry, sick, homeless, or jobless. We will simply never be able to win the battle against extreme poverty unless we address violence.”

Enforcing the Law to Protect Widows and Orphans

Our Intervention Teams partner with local law enforcement authorities to restore victims, prosecute criminals, and prevent future abuses.

Ensuring that Widows and Orphans are Safe Enough to Prosper

Through one case, we restore a single family to safety. Through a critical mass of cases, we create a deterrent impact that protects all the widows and orphans in the community.
