The unique challenges and discrimination widows the world over face due to social stigma and age old cultural practices have been gathering increasing attention across the media in the past few years.

We at the Loomba Foundation have been striving to expand the base of this growing awareness with sustained efforts in lobbying governments, international organizations, NGOs and eminent public figures.

On this page you will find articles, blog posts, photos, videos and additional resources showcasing the foundation’s participation and involvement in some of the activities we have either funded or supported. Our objective is to help train a spotlight on the difficulties widows face and share the efforts made in empowering them.

“All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarise that society. We can brutalise it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level.” - William Bernbach
