Healthy Bodies

We will be providing the girls in our organization with the Mina Cup to help manage their menstrual cycle and prevent them from missing school during this time. Just as importantly, we teach the boys what this means.

Healthy Place

We will be building our first library in Zimbabwe. It will allow our students a safe, quiet place to study at night when there are no lights at their homes. It will be a place that encourages a culture of reading.

Amina's Gift provides direct funding for African children who need basic daily living necessities like food, clothes and shoes. We also pay for school fees and transportation to local clinics to receive government provided health care and medications.

We support ourselves by purchasing crafts by local artists and then reselling them. This provides employment for the local artists, who in return are able to support their families. The profits are used to support and encourage a good education for all the children in the community.

Amina’s Gift  is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (EIN: 81-2176467).

“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
-Nelson Mandela
All lives have equal value.
