Amman Immans 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.

  • 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.
