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 Sasa Youth Camp
Support the participation of Amani’s youth in the Amani Sasa (Peace Now) youth camp! Amani Sasa is a 3-year program for youth between the ages of 14 and 16. Through the Amani Sasa program, the teenage children of the Amani mothers are provided with opportunities to learn life skills, with the ultimate goal of molding minds and hearts in the way of peace and integrity. Activities center around life skills development, teamwork, reconciliation and peacemaking–all based on Biblical values. The highlight of this program is an overnight outdoor camp for youth. It costs only $370 to provide one refugee youth the opportunity to attend Amani Sasa each year.

Amani Watoto Children’s Camp
Led by the Amani mothers, Amani Watoto (Children of Peace) is a day camp for children. Here the youngest in the community learn principles of God’s peace and forgiveness through games, crafts, and stories. With three sessions during school holidays throughout the year, Amani Watoto has an ongoing impact on the lives of these children. Even though they come from different ethnic groups, the Amani Watoto are learning to love and accept one another regardless of differences.

Donations provide teaching materials, crafts, and hot lunches for the Amani Watoto camps.

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.

English Classes
Many women at Amani ya Juu want to take English classes to improve their language skills and better communicate with customers and others in their community. It is exciting to be able to provide these classes at Amani. Gifts from supporters help to cover fees for English classes and invest in the long-term opportunities for interested women at Amani.
