Joyce Muraya -- Kenya Country Director, Amani Ya Juu, www.amaniafrica.org
Amani Ya Juu started from an American Missionary, who found herself forced to leave Liberia, and started a place for other refugees to call home. Amani ya Juu (meaning "higher peace" in Swahili) is a sewing-marketing-training project for marginalized women in Africa. The main center is located in Nairobi, Kenya with sister centers in Rwanda and Burundi. The women involved in the project are learning to work together through faith in God who provides a higher peace that transcends ethnic differences. Amani itself portrays a unique picture of diversity with women coming from Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Uganda, Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia as well as other African countries. The Purpose: The project serves a two-fold purpose. First, Amani gives African women the opportunity to improve their sewing and marketing skills. The women gain experience in purchasing, bookkeeping, skill training, 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 in their faith together. As part of the daily activities at the center, the Amani women participate in singing, praying, Bible study and visiting one another in their homes. Relationships, built upon God's peace, transform even the most troubled lives. Joyce was previously a pasture and always wanted to work with women. Amani Ya Juu marries her background in micro finance, her faith and the ability to work with women in an inspirational setting.

Words of Wisdom: To survive as an African woman, you have to deploy every single strength and gift you have.
