Who We Are
We are a U.S.-based, 100 percent volunteer run organization with the mission of coming alongside talented and passionate Kenyans empowering them to serve vulnerable children and families within their own community.
Ameena Project operates a community school called Ameena Centre in Kiang’ombe – a vulnerable and once isolated community near Thika, Kenya. The school serves children ages 3-8 years old. We employ dedicated Kenyan staff including a director, teachers, security guards and kitchen staff. Our students receive two nourishing meals a day and enjoy an engaging curriculum of learning and activities, preparing them for success in Kenyan primary school and beyond
We’ve seen our school become the heartbeat of the community with elders and family members uniting to help make the project a success. And for many in the community, they are, for the first time, viewing education as something attainable and important for their children. This has brought tremendous hope to the community that is now full of active and vibrant children.
