In an exciting first for FOA UK, musicians Robin Ward (harp) and Anna Smither (vocals) have made an exclusive concert recording, all the proceeds from which they are donating to Amani. The recording goes live on 9th April and we're hoping to reach 1000 views around the world - click the link, share the link, tell your friends! www.justgiving.com/fundraising/amaniconcert.
At the end of 2020, Board Member Cathy Baines was persuaded to take over as chair, taking over from the wonderful Cathie Bartlam, who wanted to move towards a well-earned retirement. Cathy joined the FOA UK Board in 2019 after having been an Amani supporter for many years. Based in Birmingham, she brings her experience in Social Work to the unenviable task of shepherding and coordinating the work of the FOA UK board. We wish her many happy years in the post!
Amani supporters around the world are invited to join a Zoom call (held in English) to hear an update about things are currently going at the Centre. Meindert Schaap, Executive Director and Alfred Kamphonje, Chief Operating Officer, will talk to Kim Parlee of the US about how Amani continues to change lives, even in the face of current challenges in Tanzania. Wednesday March 24th, 4pm UK time for approx 45 minutes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a link to the call.
