On 31 August 2021 we held an event at at Tapijnkazerne in Maastricht organised together with Philia Maastricht and O.H.D. Odysseus

 

The event was a great chance to enjoy some time together and talk about Students for Amani's mission and the new project we are supporting, Rümanische Waisenkinder e.V.

We are very glad to say that thanks to your support we raised €370 which will be used to pay for a teacher for the 24 Orphaned children from Rümanische Waisenkinder e.V. and the children of the Makungu care home.

We hope you enjoyed it and to see you again very soon!

Yoga class in Zürich

On June 26 we organised a yoga event in Zurich to promote physical and mental health and raise awareness for our projects. It was a chance to meet with some of our supporters in Switzerland. 

The event was a success thanks to our awesome teacher, Michèle. 

In total, we managed to raise €315, what an achievement! We would like to thank everyone who attended the event and donated to Students for Amani.
