Our flagship project is with our partner organization, International Peace Initiatives. Together we are working to create our prototype model. Current projects include:

  • The Amani Children's Home

  • Funding for primary and secondary schools

  • Skill development for community women

  • Peace and ethical leadership training

  • Tiriji Eco Center

The Amani Home's current list of needs includes: 

  •  A boys dormitory, as overcrowding has become a major issue due to an increase in violence against boys
  • Purchasing indigenous chickens and chicken coop to increase the amount of protein (eggs and meat) for the children
  • Expanding the Eco Center
