1.Camp programs for children and youth, scholarship support for women returning to school, emergency assistance during unexpected crisis, or startup costs for a new area of growth.
2. Infrastructure development, such as a new work space or supplies to start a cafe, but are always seen as bridges that bring us to the next phase.
General donations are used in supporting outreach and strategic growth for the ministry of Amani ya Juu. Celebrate our 20th anniversary by giving a gift to Amani. Your gift will ensure that we continue to effectively pass the peace to those we serve.
Amani Children's Peace Camp
Several times a year,our production centers in Africa shut down and the focus shifts to the children of the trainees. This is a day camp called Amani Watoto in Kenya meaning “Children of Peace”. Children from all different backgrounds celebrate peace and forgiveness through games, crafts, and stories. Donations made to the camp will go to teaching materials, crafts, & hot lunches.
Amani Emergency Fund
Many Amani women live on the edge of survival. Gifts to the Emergency Fund provide support for basic needs when individuals are faced with unexpected crisis. Gifts in the past have been used for food distribution during post-election violence in Kenya, traumatic loss in a family, medical expenses for extreme illnesses, and emergency home relocation due to physical danger. A gift today can help provide for a day in the future when the women of Amani face uncertainty and loss.
Amani Sewing Machines
Stitching is at the heart of Amani’s work and new sewing machines are essential for women new to Amani or working at the younger Amani centers. Donations to sewing machines are used to assist women in purchasing their own sewing machines, which enables them to work at home while caring for their families.
Amani Uganda was planted by Simprosa, long-time member of the Amani ya Juu family in Kenya who returned home to northern Uganda to pass peace to the war-torn region. The women of Amani Uganda are trained and mentored by women from Amani Nairobi. The center is up and running, but still needs capital to grow during this phase.
