Get Involved

 

We are looking for volunteers that will help us with our ongoing projects and to fund raise and raise awareness for our organization. By supporting Amsha Africa Foundation "AAF" initiatives, you will help transform local villages and slums by giving them a hand up, not a handout. You will provide the means to promote efforts that are proven to be viable, self sustaining and perpetual, capturing an opportunity to leave a living legacy for future generations.

There are many great ideas that participants over the years have used to raise funds and awareness for AAF.  Each year participants get more creative on fundraising. Participants had wine tasting parties, daily office loose change collection, picnics in the park with a silent auction, morning coffee and bake sale at the office and other creative office contests. People can't donate if they don't know you are participating as an AAF volunteer! Talk about Amsha Africa Foundation programs with everyone you come in contact with and tell them about our programs and how they will help improve the lives of the impoverished in many ways!

 Prevention and Protection Against Child Abuse and Neglect

 

Child abuse is a clear and present danger plaguing Africa.

Child abuse can be described as physical maltreatment of the child and the denial of the child's rights.

In Africa, acts of child abuse are usually committed in polygamous homes as well as in extended family settings where children who have lost either or both parents are left in the care of distant relatives or guardians and step-parents who treat them as if they are animals.

Amsha Africa Foundation is pooling its resources and joining forces with our partners in an effort to stop child abuse and neglect and educate communities in Kenya.

  Community Water Security Planning



When people have raised community awareness about the problems they face in meeting their water security needs, they are ready to take the next step. Communities can work together to plan for water security.

Planning needs to start with an assessment of current water security. This could take the form of a Water Watch activity. AAF follows these planning methods and encourages all rural communities in Africa to follow these steps to find suitable sources of safe drinking water.

 Getting Ground Water - Safe Wells & Water Holes


Many communities in Africa have had expensive tubewells built for them by governments and international agencies. One reason for making these wells is to better protect the water from contamination by people and animals. But 4 to 5 years after they are drilled, many of these wells can no longer be used because the pumps break, spare parts are no longer available, or the people who can fix them are gone.

This article illustrates inexpensive ways in which communities can access the water that is naturally stored underground in many places.

 Health Problems From Lack of Water



In raising community awareness, it is important to understand the root causes of problems. Many illnesses related to water security come from poverty and exploitation. Amsha Africa Foundation is taking steps to improve water supply in the rural communities in Africa by working together with community based organizations to assess existing water supplies and develop a plan for community water security.

This article is about water scarcity and what happens when people don’t have enough water to stay healthy.

Runoff Rainwater Harvesting in Rural Africa


According to a UN report, African countries suffering or facing water shortages as a result of climate change have a massive potential in rainwater harvesting, with nations like Ethiopia and Kenya capable of meeting the needs of six to seven times their current populations.

Amsha Africa Foundation is investing in rainwater harvesting technology that is low cost, simple to deploy and maintain, and able to transform the lives of households, communities and countries Africa-wide. In dry parts of Africa, a lot of water is lost as surface runoff. There are many ways to harvest and store rainwater. Harvesting this runoff and storing it in reservoirs such as water pans or underground tanks makes it available for use when required. This Action Sheet explains how communities can build and harvest the rainwater that falls on their land for use in farming.
