OUR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
As part of our social responsibilities, we want to help, encourage and bring joy to the hearts of widows. Why widows? According to the Ghana statistical service report in 2020, approximately 850,000 of the national population have lost their spouse and 86% of the above figures are widows.
They are the most vulnerable after children. Most “less sort” for groups. Most widows after the death of their spouse LACK EMOTIONAL CARE. Many widows do not have the courage to marry again. This comes as a result of been tagged a whore and/or the person responsible for the death of her spouse. The opposite is very different. In Africa, with reference to Ghana, most widowers marry less than six months after they lose their spouse. They are hailed and they walk free. Widows are made to undergo unnecessary funeral rites which is physically and psychologically abusive. This goes down to affect their self-worth. To make matters worse, some communities tag such women as witches, especially when these widows have grown into old age or they lost their spouses very early.
Aside emotional crises, a widow may face financial support especially if she depended on her husband as a source of livelihood. Yet, again she may face even more pressure financially if she has children to take care of. I ask, who will she ask to solicit help? She is trapped. She can go into depressive mood and if care not taken, might commit suicide.
THE SHEILA OCLOO FOUNDATION initiates the
“PAINT AND PLAY, THE PAIN OFF”. To begin with, we will locate widows through surveys from villages and widow association groups in Ghana. We have located several. Our team will then move in to interact with these widows and teach them how to paint. We will then give five (5) or more paint canvasses to them. They will paint in groups amidst music, play and social interactions. 1% of the proceeds sold from their paintings will be donated to them.
