The Imani Project was started in April 2007, through the coming together of some exisiting groups and the formation of new ones, with the vision to see an economically empowered community.
In 2014 the Umoja Project was merged with Imani and today the Imani Project works directly with 17 groups , creating a community of nearly 1200 people, of whom nearly 400 are orphans and vulnerable children and also alongside a significant and growing number of aspiring groups .
Among the significant activities Imani focusses on are cottage industry, agro business, energy enterprises and home based care through the 2 clinics we support.
Imani staff believes in team work, accountability, participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation, respect for the clients we serve and a feeling of love for them.
Imani emphasizes preventive health care, and the team goes into areas of home based care for terminally ill patients, community outreach and mobile clinics. The team also mobilizes community members for HIV/AIDS and a drug abuse awareness campaign.
Imani mobilizes community support in order for clients living in very poor houses to get proper housing.
The team emphasizes on water treatment (safe water system) and construction of pit latrines.
Presently the community we serve is food insecure, so Imani works towards the production of food and also helps the community groups identify income generating activities to boost their income. The team also encourages groups living with HIV/AIDS to save in order to become self-sustained.
The Imani team is committed to positively changing the lifestyle of our people.
