Amani ya Juu
Amani ya Juu ("Peace from Above" in Swahili) is a sewing and reconciliation project for marginalized women based in East 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 difference. Amani itself portrays a unique picture of diversity with women coming from over 10 different countries throughout Africa. Many women have been refugees and all experience marginalization in some way.
