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 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 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 Children of Peace Camp
Several times a year, production at centers in Kenya and Burundi (and soon Uganda!) shut down and the focus shifts to the children of the trainees. The event is a day camp called Amani Watoto in Kenya and Amahoro Bano in Burundi, meaning “Children of Peace”. The children celebrate peace and forgiveness through games, crafts, and stories. Though they come from different ethnic groups, they learn to accept each other and play together regardless of differences. The camp is run by mothers who work at Amani.

Sewing Machines
Stitching is at the heart of Amani’s work. 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. Consider giving to this fund and extending a practical support to these women.

Elizabeth Sumwabe Scholarship Fund
This fund extends the opportunity for education. Elizabeth Sumwabe was a Liberian woman whose strength and determination has left a powerful legacy at Amani ya Juu. The Elizabeth Sumwabe Scholarship Fund is a special education support initiative established to honor Elizabeth’s life and courage. A university education is an important step for developing young African leaders. Many young women at Amani are unable to attend a local university without financial assistance. Scholarships are given to women who live with integrity, persevere in the face of adversity, give selflessly of themselves, and are driven by their faith in God. Women who have received the scholarship and completed a university program are now serving at Amani and around the world. By contributing to the Elizabeth Sumwabe Scholarship Fund, you are investing not only in one young woman, but also in the communities she will go on to impact for decades to come.
