In telling amescosa's story, we are most delighted and grateful about the support of people spreading the word of our unique initiative. Therefore, we like to thank the online magazine "Untergrund-Blättle" from Switzerland giving us a great opportunity to share our engagement and to make it more known across boarders.

In the same breath, I also want to sincerely thank my family and friends for always being with me in this undertaking from far, giving me encouragement, strengthening my back at any time and showing trust in our endeavor. YOU ARE AMAZING and you give me the spirit to surmount every challenge and to demonstrate my potential to succeed. A PERSONAL MISSION IS NOT AN ISLAND.

"amescosa-road to recovery" is the first, exclusive women-specific initiative in Kenya reaching out to female youth with alcohol and multi-drug addiction facing a variety of barriers to transform their lives. We support these young women and mothers holistically to liberate themselves from gender based discrimination and violence, abuse, trauma and forced sex work to lead a healthy, self-responsible, self-determined and self-reliant, using their experience as catalyst to become a strong and pro-active force of change at the grass roots of society.

A STRONG, LOUD AND UNITED VOICE CAN BRING ABOUT CHANGE


We launched a WORLD WIDE PETITION to ensure the inclusion of all women-specific aspects in both policies and practice of Dependence Work:

EVERY SINGLE SIGNATURE counts and has a significant impact for young women and mothers with substance use disorders in Kenya. Kindly take a moment and support our endeavor for gender equality in a MINOR FOCUSED realm. THANK YOU!
