Village of Hope Library, Ngando
I am happy and glad to partner with Amuka Foundation in Equipping, Empowering and Enabling learners, who come to the Village of Hope Library to learn and gain knowledge as well as being taken through the mentorship programs.
Apart from supporting the mentorship programs Amuka Foundation has established a center for women (Tumaini Mama Program) where they come to learn both life and technical skills in line with sewing of materials.
Many thanks to Amuka Foundation for the good job of transforming the young people and the community at large in Ngando area.
Since I joined the Amuka project in Ngando in 2017 November, a lot has changed with the learners who we mentor at Village of Hope Library.
Through Amuka Foundation the hopeless kid now has hope! The learners go through mentorship programs and also engage in co-curriculum activities after school courtesy of Amuka Foundation. Thank you for the mentorship training you sponsored for us to attend. As team Ngando, we are grateful for the support you have offered to us.
I was first introduced to Amuka project in Ngando in 2017 as the program leader at Village of Hope library. I belief one of the keys to empowering the youth is with skill development, which they can utilize and able to use it in future. This is what Amuka Twende Ngando is exactly doing!
Truly, no words can completely capture the joyous feelings in my heart when I think of Amuka Foundation. It has transformed the lives of many teenagers and youth in Ngando area.
Amazing Foundation with Amazing people!

The partnership with Amuka Foundation started back in 2016. Since then Kimmta Centre has improved through capacity building of the staff members, donations of books, educational toys, children’s clothes and sanitary towels. Through the Amuka Kimmta empowerment club many lives have been transformed in Kibera.
We are Better with Amuka!
As a mentor the Amuka Foundation has sponsored me to a number of mentorship trainings. Through this I gained skills and experiences that I use to mentor the girls and boys at the Kimmta area project.
I can affirm that yes; the children have benefitted immensely from the empowerment programs. They really appreciate what Amuka Foundation is doing in their lives in partnership with Kimmta.
Long Live Amuka Foundation.
Working with Amuka in Kimmta under the Amuka Twende empowerment program has been my greatest opportunity. Thanks for the coming of Amuka Foundation indeed, the empowerment program has greatly improved as we got support of educational materials, clothes and sanitary towels for the learners.
Through Amuka Foundation we felt motivated with the capacity building opportunities, workshops and empowerment trainings as well as the stipends we receive. Great to have Violet on board, whom together we mentor the boys and girls at Amuka Kimmta area project.
I strongly belief that with Amuka Kimmta I will be able to bridge the information gap that proves to be the greatest challenge to young people all over the world. Indeed, the future is bright provided we embrace knowledge and information.
I am honored to be part of Amuka. My work is to train a group of 15 women from Karare region on how to sew, make small purses and re-usable sanitary towels. Thanks to Amuka Foundation for training’s on sewing and capacity building forums, which you sponsored me to attend.
Normally, we have our training’s on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Saturday.
I believe and I am very confident that with the training’s, the women group will make more purses and sanitary towels. Currently, we are sharing 5 machines and this slows the work. I wish the women can get more of the sewing machines.
