Children of peace

Amani Watoto Dance Camp

Several times a year we shift our focus to the children of the Amani women. The Amani Watoto Camp, meaning “Children of Peace” in Swahili, is a day camp where children from all different backgrounds celebrate peace and forgiveness through games, crafts, and stories. The Amani Watoto (Children of Peace)Program, intends to instill in children the values of God’s love and acceptance for one another, regardless of race or ethnic group. There is evidence of transformation in the lives of the women of Amani ya Juu from many ethnic groups in Africa. As progress has been made in rebuilding the lives of these women, the question continues to be asked: “What is being done to stop these vicious cycles of conflict in Africa?” That is how Amani Watoto began.

Amani Watoto program is held three times a year, during school vacations. In the months of April, August and December, children from various ethnic backgrounds learn to grow together through teachings of the Bible stories, activites & team building. They learn to serve as ambassadors of peace within their neighborhoods, schools and churches. Through enriching and fun activities, the youngest of hearts and minds experience that peace is possible despite many differences.
