Pam is proud and honored to have your help in being able to give back to the communities she has come to know and love by creating Amaya's Education for Empowerment Program. Over 69 million young women around the world are not in school, and most live in impoverished countries. This program helps educate girls in India, Kenya and Afghanistan and other developing countries . These young women, who would otherwise be unable to attend school, are provided with the funding for their education from Amaya. Now they will be able to stand on their own, earn a living, and contribute to their society.

Meet some of our girls

Meet Michell, a student from Kangubiri Girls High School. She is a studying and working hard to achieve her goal as a surgeon. She is very happy to be a part with us and we are very hopeful that she will become a surgeon one day!
Nameera is new to us. She is 13 years old and in grade 8. This is her first year at Zabuli Education Center. She has 7 sisters and 2 brothers. Nameera would like to be a police officer when she finishes school. She is very happy in her new school and feels it is the best environment whereby excellent teachers will enable her to excel.
Rose is in boarding school since starting high school. She had a difficult time her first year being away from her family and living with girls from other tribes. The academics were also very demanding so she found it necessary to study all the time. However, she is doing well now and her grades go up every semester.
Meet Janhavi, a 13-year-old student in India. This bright and curious student is interested in academics, dance, cultural programs, and public speaking. She wants to become an engineer. Janhavi is an orphan and is struggling for the moment. We are hopeful she continues to study.
Annet is a Masai girl from the Mara. There are seven children in the family and her father is no longer there. This year she changed schools to one in the Rift Valey that has higher academic standards and a fine reputation. The curriculum is very intense. She’s a good student and will no doubt excel there.
Jagruti’s teachers have told us that the schools and colleges in India have not yet reopened, but she is taking online classes. It seems Jagruti is using her parent’s phone for this. A large majority in India have access to mobile phones because they are so reasonable.
Like most others, her family has struggled following the lockdown in March. Her father lost his job and her mother could not find work. Thankfully, in the last month, her father is back at work and her mother does odd jobs such as selling fish at the docks. In addition to our scholarship funds the family has received some assistance with food and some household expenses through donations such as ours.
It makes us very happy to know we have been able to help, with your assistance, during this time.
