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.
“The sense of outrage has now reached fever-pitch levels in South Africa. But it is nothing new for Umthombo’s staff as they continue to reach out and journey alongside the young women and girls on the streets of Durban.” On Her Terms lead, Karin Joseph, writes about the tragic increase in gender-based violence in South Africa.
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.
Karunalaya, our partners in Chennai, India, have been representing their country and the rights of children on the streets since 2014. This year is no different as Karunalaya is representing South India at the Street Child Cricket World Cup in London in May. Full details.
At the core of Amos Trust’s work are the individuals who support us. Our work is made possible by you. Large or small, your donation makes a real difference.
