Our DC shop got funky recently with a wonderful event supporting Amani ya Juu!
April was a busy and exciting month for AmaniDC! On April 25th, many of you joined us for an evening event at the Kenyan Embassy. Kenyan Ambassador Elkanah Odembo hosted AmaniDC for an evening of music by Anna Mwalagho, dancing, refreshments, and Kenyan culture.
AmaniDC hosted a sale and fundraiser and had an opportunity to tell guests about the work that Amani ya Juu is doing in Africa and the US. Some guests had visited the Amani center in Kenya, and some (including the Embassy staff) promised to stop in and say hello on their next visit to Nairobi.
AmaniDC thanks the Kenyan Embassy for its gracious hospitality and for welcoming us to tell the story of Amani in a new venue. We also thank Collaborate to Impact, a nonprofit that empowers and brings together other nonprofits, for helping us to put on this event.
