The Tamarind Project
© Simon Plater
Amos Trust partners are at the heart of a global network of highly innovative community projects.
These projects include work with street children in South Africa; promotion of human rights and sustainable communities for Dalits in rural India; community development and education provision in Nicaragua and working toward peace and reconciliation in Palestine and Israel.
The Tamarind Project is a sustainable community project working with Dalits in Southern India. (Dalit means untouchable.) The project provides further education for Dalit young people and teacher training.
We support community development initiatives set up by our partners, CEPAD, Amos Health & Hope and Prestanic Microcredit. This work includes training community health workers who pass on their knowledge to the wider community, supporting the teachers at the Avocado Tree School and helping communities run their own banks and farming cooperatives.
We partner peacemakers in both Palestine and Israel. We endeavour to hear their stories, stand alongside them in their suffering and support their work.
Umthombo Street Children is a South African street child project run primarily by former street children.
We maintain links of friendship and support with other projects and people around the world, who are former Amos partners.
