Liberia Our Story
Amani Liberia is a sewing and business-training project for women in Liberia. The project serves a two-fold purpose. First, Amani gives women the opportunity to improve skills such as purchasing, bookkeeping, quality control, management and design. Second, Amani aims to sow seeds of peace in the hearts of the women as they grow in community and faith together.
In 1989, pain and loss gripped Liberia as civil conflict broke out. Becky Chinchen, an American working to develop Liberia, was forced to flee with her family.
In 1996, Becky founded Amani ya Juu in Kenya. Amani offered a place where wounds could heal, life could be revived, and purpose could be restored. Peace was lived out in Kenya and soon passed to sister centers in other countries.
In 2011, God’s peace for families and communities came full circle with the opening of Amani Liberia in the rural community of Yekepa, Liberia. Amani Liberia is a place where peace transcends.
