DEVELOPMENT OF GROUPS
The development of self-help groups is the core activity supported by Amani UK. Groups will include widows, widowers, orphans and young people and a 10 year programme tailored to each group is followed by the members to enable them to move out of poverty and become self-sustaining
Homebased care is an integral part of the Amani UK support for the local community, reaching out as it does to those most in need and least able to help themselves. We believe that working within the community to provide better provision of food, water, housing, health, education and employment is the way forward.
Amani UK supports the Ted Rayner Memorial clinic which provides healthcare in a very rural area. We also fund the training of Community Health Workers who enable basic medical needs to be met prior, if necessary, to referral to the clinic or local hospitals.
Amani UK works to set up links between UK and Kenyan schools. We run a programme where classes in the 2 countries correspond with one another and exchange experiences of their local life and culture. We also run a programme called Keep a Girl in School (KaGiS) which provides sanitary towels to thousands of Kenyan girls, enabling them to maintain their attendance at school, continue their education uninterrupted and to stay safe.
Amani UK works closely with a separate charity called Trade Relief. Trade Relief supports local businesses to grow sustainable businesses which provide employment, services and social benefits to the local community.
