Lucy Passes Peace in South Sudan

Kenya Testimony Travels

Amani trains women with skills to live self-sustainable lives, but also empowers them to extend help to others in need. Women who decide to use the skills they've learned at Amani to impact different communities are a great source of pride for the Amani family. Some of them, like Simprosa from Uganda and Goreth from Burundi, return to their home countries to plant an Amani center. Others use their new abilities to reach communities where they live, like Jeanette who trains women in one of Nairobi's Somali neighborhoods. Many of the Amani ladies in Kenya are refugees who dream of one day returning home to help rebuild their country. One of these women is Lucy, a founding member of Amani and a refugee in Kenya from South Sudan. A fiercely loyal citizen of the world's youngest nation state, Lucy and her family have worked to advocate for their people and tell the world about the refugee experience. These days, she is on a month-long trip to South Sudan where she is training war widows. It is a joy for Amani to send her to train and encourage women who have experienced so much suffering and loss. Below are some pictures of the Lucy, the widows, and the community.

She bears witnesses to hope, peace, and the possibility of transformation.
