Amara Hub is a youth-led community based organisation whose mission is to nurture and empower bold communities of change.

Focus: Citizenship & Identification, Community / Customary Land Rights, Gender-based violence, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Livelihoods, Right to Information, Women's Rights

Amara Hub convenes different cohorts of grassroots self-help groups to engage in evidence-based programs that focus on expanding their economic opportunities. Our premise is that empowerment is a process. By tracking direct, intermediate and final outcomes in the lives of the community members over time, we can better measure the process of empowerment. Amara Hub’s formative research has informed locally tailored interventions on employability skills and digital literacy. We compliment these with critical programs for youth on sexual and reproductive health.
