About Us



 KASOW (Kanyawegi Support for Orphans and Widows) was founded in 2004 and is a registered charitable organization in Canada. KASOW is devoted to empowering rural communities in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa to achieve sustainable health, education, food security and economic development.  Our approach is with participatory development as opposed to providing hand outs, as we encourage active involvement of constituents in defining problems, making policies and planning programs. We aim to empower communities with relevant knowledge and skills for them to take charge of their own development agenda thus making the projecting community owned.
