As the Amani Liberia center continues to grow, its 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 further growth and support a variety of outreach programs that have emerged as ways to share peace with women and their families.
|Support for Amani Liberia|
|With the foundation of the Liberia center, Amani has come full circle. Amani began when its founder Becky Chinchen fled with her family as refugees from the Liberian civil war. Out of this experience was born the Amani ya Juu of Kenya, which later grew to centers throughout East Africa and beyond. Today, peace has returned and hope is emerging in Liberia. Your gift supports the continued development of the Amani Liberia center.
|Amani Liberia Girls Club|
|The Amani Girls Club breaks the destructive cycle which hinders a Liberian girl and her success in life. The Amani Girls Club, an initiative of Amani Liberia, is a weekly after school program in Yekepa, Liberia that aims to encourage school girls ages 8-11 to stay in school.
Many young girls in Liberia face pressure to engage in prostitution or enter into early marriage to support their families financially. The Amani Girls Club strives to keep girls in school by providing a safe place where they can learn life skills. Mentors lead them in discussions and activities that build self worth, draw out their God given talents, and fill them with confidence and optimism about their futures.
|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.
