HOME | PROGRAM IN AZAWAk | Accomplishments and Impact

Amman Imman empowers and helps preserve Africa’s most vulnerable indigenous peoples and engages students worldwide as socially conscious leaders. Through our Africa-based program, Oases of Life, we establish points of civilization that flourish, beginning with the construction of permanent water sources. Our programs emphasize the role of women and youth as a guiding force for societal stability, optimism, and resilience.

Amman Imman’s Work and Accomplishments:

  • Through our program, Oases of Life, we serve nomadic populations of the Azawak, an arid Florida-
    sized valley on the edge of the Sahara Desert in Niger, among the poorest nations of the world.
  • We work in the Sahel, one of the areas on Earth worst-hit by climate change. We offer sustainable
    solutions for populations to adapt to their rapidly changing environment.
  • Through our program, Wells of Love, we serve as the link between students of the global north and the
    global south, as they reach out to one another in solidarity to build ties of peace and friendship.
  • Thousands of students in more than a hundred schools worldwide partner with Amman Imman to
    become advocates for the children of our African communities.
  • Amman Imman was recently honored as one of the Top 500 NGOs in the world (#185). In the same
    rankings we were in the top 10 water-focused NGOs.
  • We offer a hand of friendship from the Western world to Muslim populations in danger of falling under
    the influence of extremists.
  • We bring stability to areas at risk of conflict, brought on by poverty and regional political instability.
  • Our boreholes provide permanent sources of sustainable and clean water to more than 100,000 Tuareg
    and Fulani pastoralists who in the past endured perpetual thirst.
  • Our cereal and fodder banks, livestock programs, and organic gardens offer food security to over
    10,000 children and adults, as well as their animals.
  • Our mobile health clinic, malaria prevention program, and sanitation outreach help make health
    services accessible for more than 15,000 people.
  • Our classrooms and educational programs encourage hundreds of girls to stay in school.
  • Our women’s livestock projects and artisan cooperatives offer additional economic security for several
    hundred women. Management and literacy training helps them gain autonomy.
  • 90% of our staff (employees and volunteers) are women, both in America and in Africa.
  • Vision and goals: Help preserve a vanishing world heritage, promote stability and opportunity,
    empower women, save children, foster future change makers, and serve at least 500,000 people within
    the next five years.
