Kenya - Support
Over the years, Amani Kenya’s commitment to holistic ministry has led to pursuing peace in unique and creative ways. While daily operations and training are self-sustaining, paid for through the sale of Amani products, donations are used to support a variety of outreach programs that have emerged as ways to share peace with women and their families.
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 are used for food distribution, 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 “Children of Peace” Camp
Several times a year, Kenya and Uganda shifts focus to the children of the trainees. The event is a day camp called Amani Watoto, meaning “Children of Peace”. Mothers teach their children through games, crafts, and Bible stories to live for peace. Give to the Amani Watoto program and prepare children to become the next generation of peace ambassadors.
Stitching is at the heart of our work. New sewing machines are essential for women at Amani. Machines are also needed for growing centers. Donations to sewing machines are used to support new centers as well as assist new women in purchasing their own sewing machines enabling them to work from home. Consider giving to this fund and extending a practical support to these women.
Elizabeth Sumwabe Scholarship Fund
Elizabeth Sumwabe was a Liberian woman whose strength and determination has left a powerful legacy at Amani ya Juu. Elizabeth died as a refugee, as so many mothers do, while trying to protect her children from the violence and physical trauma that is often a result of war. Elizabeth showed courage and perseverance in the face of adversity.Elizabeth represents the thousands of mothers who die while trying to save their children from danger. The Elizabeth Sumwabe Scholarship Fund was created to bring life and hope to women who have found the courage and the will to move on with their lives.
This fund extends support for education. A higher education is an important step for developing women in Africa who want to make a difference in their communities. Many young women at Amani are unable to further their education without financial assistance. Scholarships are given to women who demonstrate qualities of integrity, service and discipline. Women who have received scholarships through this fund are now serving at Amani and around the world
Contribute to this fund and invest in women who will impact communities for decades to come.
