My name is Gertrude Kadzuwa. I am an emerging writer and poet. I am a carrier of a message of hope which I gleaned from the valley of widowhood. I was widowed in 2012 and left with three children. Being widowed is one thing but what one become is another. My loss became an opportunity to reach out to widows in Malawi through a community based group called Widows Opportunity. But I also started writing messages to encourage widows and their families. Most of my works are unpublished. I am hoping one day I will compile a book. I also go around and share my poems with people.
