Don't Take our word for it
Here is what some of our beneficiaries have to say about our work for the community
I got pregnant in senior two at the age of 17. I dropped out of school. When I gave birth, I wanted to resume school but there was no one to pay my school fees. Amani took me back to school and I will be completing my O’level next year.
I dropped out of school in senior two after I got pregnant. My baby died after birth. I wanted to resume school but my guardian was unable to raise my school fees. Amani Initiative helped me pay school fees and provided me with scholastic materials. They have continued to mentor and guide me to continue with my studies.
I was identified by a community champion from Oluffe Sub-County to be part of the leaders representing girls with disability and teenage mothers. I underwent training by Amani Initiative as a leader and peer educator. I use my story to campaign against teenage pregnancy and child marriage within my community as one of the Community Girl Leaders.
