Blind beneficiaries and the AMEF TEAM

We have some disabled people people in our community who also need help in any little way. Thus at AMEF we work closely with local institutions like churches to identify some disabled people, then find out in what little way AMEF can reach out to them and after doing so, steps are taken to put a smile on the faces of identified disabled persons and their family.

As written in the United Nations Humanitarian Bulletin, Local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are often the first responders when a humanitarian crisis erupts. They have deep understanding of the context and the legitimacy to work with communities before, during and after the crisis. Since the NorthWest/South-West socio-political crisis escalated into armed violence in late 2017, existing CSOs have been on the frontline, providing emergency relief to families forced to flee their villages. With no humanitarian actors present in the two regions, building up the
capacity of these CSOs is critical to access and assist people in need, especially in hardto-reach areas where most families have sought refuge.

Authentic Memorial Empowerment Foundation (AMEF) is one of the first CSOs which, along with local communities and the church, have shifted from traditional developmentrelated operations to life-saving assistance for those in need in the North-West and South-West regions. Created in 2006, the organisation originally provided a range of activities, from Child-centred Education and Protection, to Women and Youth Economic
Empowerment as well as Literacy and Information Technology. Click on Bulletin on the right to view full copy.
