“As much of a challenge as we may all be finding the lockdown — which now has more than a fifth of the world’s population living under varying degrees of ‘stay at home’ orders — for those living on the streets, the Coronavirus pandemic is no less terrifying, but the ability to self-isolate or #StayAtHome is not an option available to them. ‘Home’ is on the streets, in abandoned buildings, or temporary structures open to the elements.” Amos’ Director Chris Rose and On Her Terms Lead, Karin Joseph write.
“If you respect us, you’ll listen to us. If you listen to us — you’ll protect us. Please protect us.” Safety for girls on the street is a daily struggle and the options open to them are often slim; many families decide that child marriage is the safest option for their teenage daughters. On Her Terms Lead Karin Joseph shares her experience of a recent visit to Karunalaya, Amos’ partner in Chennai, India.
Our October On Her Terms update features news from our partner Umthombo in South Africa and their work on the streets with girls and young women in Durban, details of how you can join Amos Trust in Tanzania next summer and how you can do something tasty in October by hosting a Diwali Dinner to raise money for Karunalaya’s work in Chennai, India. On Her Terms lead, Karin Joseph writes.
In our August update, On Her Terms — Lead, Karin Joseph writes about her first visit to Karunalaya, Amos’ partner in India, and explains Diwali Dinners — our new fundraiser which we’re launching this October. She shares news of our first supporter trip to Tanzania to visit our partner Cheka Sana and reveals the next Amos Book Club selection.
16th June marks the 43rd anniversary of the Soweto Uprising. In 1976, whilst South Africa was under apartheid rule, thousands of black school children marched in Soweto to protest about the poor quality of their education and to demand that they be taught in their own language.
