BEAD WORK – BRACELETS OF LOVE

Through our Bead Work initiative, Bracelets of Love, women craft and sell unique glass bead bracelets both locally and internationally. This enterprise not only generates employment opportunities but also contributes proceeds to support the initiatives of Hami Imani Africa. For every bracelet sold, 50% of the proceeds go back into our programs and projects.

TRAINING PROGRAMS

ENDFGM TRAINING

Female genital mutilation, or FGM, is internationally recognized as a violation of human rights. Yet over 200 million girls worldwide are at risk of undergoing this harmful practice every year, many of them under the age of 15. There are 4 different types of FGM that occur. It’s a cultural practice that happens however it goes against human rights. Its an infringement of rights on the girls and women. We work closely with the church and administration in training the dangers and health risks of FGM.

We have had 9 Trainings between 2021 -2022 in the Masaai area in Kajiado County. We have been able to rescue girls 60 of them to a safe house in a school and raised ambassadors in the different villages to be able to keep the dialogue going. We had about 5,000 people who have attended the trainings and men are amplifying the voice to be Change Agents in the community.

LIFE EQUIP GLOBAL – SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE

Life Equip Global is a dedicated consortium of pro-life leaders, leveraging years of expertise and leadership in the mission field of preserving the sanctity of human life. Using technology, we aim to disseminate our knowledge and experiences to church leaders worldwide. Our collective mission is to save lives from the global abortion crisis and bring solace to those impacted, leading them to find redemption through Christ. We are committed to witnessing the salvation of unborn babies, providing healing for those affected by past abortions, and ultimately guiding lost souls toward spiritual salvation. By empowering and supporting the Church, we strive to harness the profound influence

 of this divine institution, effecting meaningful change in the global narrative of human life sanctity.

YOUTH MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

There is a critical need to raise up and equip leaders to disciple in ways that they can multiply through discipleship. Basic mentorship programs / workshops are offered in camp setting engaging youth from different churches. Throughout the training, participants learn to share the Gospel through dynamic storytelling – directly from the Bible. Every participant can expect to learn new skills from these workshops

  • Teaching skills that bring the stories of the Bible to life
  • Fun, interactive ways to hear, learn and retell God’s Word to include: games, music, art & drama
  • Proven ways to facilitate discussions that provide a place where the Holy Spirit can penetrate their hearts.

How to create environments where the youth can share and interact through games or sports, and become active participants in God’s redemptive story instead of just distant observers

TITUS 2 WOMEN

Titus 2 Women is a women’s program designed to foster mentorship between mature women and their younger counterparts, nurturing spiritual growth and maturity. Grounded in the principles outlined in Titus 2:3-5 of the Bible, the program encourages mutual accountability in deepening biblical knowledge and fostering prayerful lives. Emphasizing a “pipe and not a bucket” philosophy, the program promotes a culture of sharing and learning, facilitating collective spiritual growth in foundational truths, empowered by the Holy Spirit and bound by love. Through prayer and inner healing sessions, participants support one another, fostering personal growth through the study of God’s Word and transformative experiences, ultimately becoming beacons of hope for women in their communities.

PROJECTS

EDUCATION FUND

We are establishing an education fund dedicated to sponsoring underprivileged children from rural communities. A portion of the proceeds from craft sales, along with contributions from partners and well-wishers, will be directed to this fund. Individuals have the opportunity to support a child’s education for $50 per month.

Current education needs:

  • Ololarroi Primary School: 10 students
  • Osewan ECD School: 100 students

 

In collaboration with schools, we undertake short-term projects that supplement their curriculum and facilitate access to educational resources. One such initiative involves procuring RACHEL (Remote Area Community Hotspot for Education and Learning) devices — portable, battery-powered tools containing educational materials tailored for various classes. Particularly beneficial in marginalized communities with limited internet access, these devices provide crucial learning opportunities.

Building more classrooms as the numbers continue to grow. It’s a good problem which will need all the resources we can get to help ease access to education for more children who have a hope and a thirst for education.

Additionally, we aim to equip select schools with beds to establish boarding facilities, serving as safe havens for girls rescued from FGM. Furthermore, we operate a school feeding program, especially crucial during periods of drought, to ensure that students have access to nourishing meals.

HEALTH AND WELL-BEING - SANITARY TOWELS PROJECT

Recognizing the pivotal role of school attendance in a young girl’s educational journey, the Sanitary Towels project serves as a platform for Hami Imani to mentor and guide young girls and boys. Through this initiative, we distribute sanitary towels while engaging in discussions centered on the gospel, values, and pertinent issues affecting rural communities.

Our Reusable Sanitary Project has notably reduced school dropout rates, instances of teen pregnancies, and early marriages. By providing sanitary towels and teaching personal hygiene practices, we instill a sense of dignity and worth in these young women, allowing them to embrace their menstrual cycle as a natural aspect of womanhood, free from shame and isolation. A mere $10 a month ensures that one girl receives an adequate supply of sanitary towels, empowering her to continue her education without interruptions.

ZERO HUNGER HUMANITARIAN AID – PROJECT 97

In response to the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have joined forces with other ministry partners to provide crucial aid to the Maasai community and other families in need. Hami Imani coordinates the distribution of essential food packages to areas facing the most severe shortages. Additionally, we actively address various individual needs, extending our support and assistance to those facing challenging circumstances.

WATER / WASH

Women and girls go far to get water and they cover long distances to just get a few litres of water.

Proper Toilets in some places are not available and we have done a few toilets in different villages to give them dignity and help reduce risks of diseases especially if it rains. We have so far done six toilets to serve the different communities in the area.

Throughout all our endeavors, prayer and unwavering faith in God’s healing touch remain foundational. We strive to restore the belief of women and girls in God, themselves, and humanity, emphasizing their innate and unique worth as beautifully created in the image of God. We stand committed to fostering holistic healing and restoration within these communities.

PRAYER REQUEST

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERY SITUATION, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD. ~Philippians 4:6

WE LIFT EACH OTHER UP IN PRAYER

Praying for others is a way to care for someone, no matter where they are in the world. When you pray for others, you offer them your time, thoughts, energy and piece of your heart. The power of prayer is undeniable as evidenced in blessings and physical and spiritual healing. When we pray together for one another, we strengthen one another.
