Rose has three girls and one boy. Her youngest son is still in school. Her husband died more than 15 years ago. All her girls are now married and living with their husbands in a different town.
Rose moved to Kinangop in 2008 from Eldoret. When political violence broke out there she was attacked in her house being from a different tribe and so she fled to save her life and her son’s life. She is thankful that in her arrival the h.o.w? widows welcomed her in the community and into the group.
Rose used to own a secondhand clothing shop in Eldoret. She says she would have a better standard of living if it were not for losing everything in the violence.
In 2015, donors surprised us with funds to provide Rose with a new home on land next to Mary, for whom she serves as caregiver. She and her son are now all moved in!
