Feed & Empower Domestic Violence Survivors--Kenya

Valentine's Empowerment Message
Valentine's Empowerment Message

The farm is doing well thanks to plentiful rain, which is expected to continue. We were able to hire a farm supervisor last month, who will oversee the operation of the farm and animal care. Through a Creation Care grant from the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, EMI is exploring the development of a demo Permaculture garden on our land outside the shelter walls. This partnership will allow EMI to share the experience and expertise the staff and residents have gained in this method of farming.

We have been blessed with volunteers from Germany and Canada, who bring a great deal of enthusiasm and energy to our programs. In preparation for Valentine’s Day, they helped staff an Agatha Amani House display at the mall in nearby Navaisha, with this message: If everyone showed their partners love, there would be no victims of abuse. We also provided information about Permaculture and its three principles – People Care, Earth Care and Fair Share.

The Agatha Amani House shelter has been at capacity since November, usually with an equal number of survivors and children. Two survivors graduated this month into safe and violence-free living situations. We have identified the need for a transition fund to provide initial rent and living expenses for our graduates, in order to better set them up for success. 

We remain grateful for the donors and volunteers who support our work to break the cycle of poverty and gender-based violence in Kenya.
