Many Blessings

The following programs help Amy’s Kids provide meals, uniforms, school supplies, medical care, teacher’s salaries and more at Furaha Sana Nursery School while also allowing the local communities to get involved!


Each year we host a large community garage sale in Laramie, Wyo., (where our headquarters are located) to raise funds for Amy's Kids. This is our largest fundraising event of the year. In 2016 we raised more than $4,000 to benefit Furaha Sana Nursery School. We collect items year-round and generally host the sale in mid-August. Dates for our 2017 Big Laramie Garage Sale will be announced soon. If you would like to donate items, please Contact us for more information.

Single Moms

Amy's Kids is a proud supporter of the Single Moms program ran by Caris International, where orphan mothers are trained on sewing machines. Every January, at the start of the school year, these talented seamstresses go out to Faraha Sana and measure each student for a uniform. The girls get a shirt and skirt, while the boys get a shirt and shorts, and this school uniform might be the only piece of clothing that they have. The uniforms for the first set of children at Furaha Sana generated enough income for three single moms to purchase their own sewing machines. On the day the uniforms are handed out each student is called by name and presented with their very own uniform. It's truly an emotional experience, as this is the first piece of anythign these kids get to call their own. Priceless. If you’d like to learn more about the Caris Foundation visit

Pillowcase Dress Drive

In years past we have supplied the girls at Furaha Sana with pillowcase dresses. In 201, with the help of dozens of volunters, we donated more than 100 dresses that were received with so much love and thanks. We look forward to doing more pillowcase dress drives in the future. If you have a group interested in spearheading a drive please contact us today!
