African Fashion Show, Coming to You!

Amani2 ...only there's a lot more to these 10 women from Nairobi than style.

Over the next two weeks, these women will be representing Amani ya Juu as they stop in Orlando (FL), Charlotte (NC), and Washington (DC), to walk down the runway and tell about their journeys from horror--war, famine, poverty, abuse--to healing.

The tour is appropriately titled Sankofa--in Swahili, "Look Back. Walk Forward."

Amani ("Higher Peace") works with 70 women from previously and currently volatile countries--like Rwanda, Uganda, and Congo--pointing them to Christ to help them heal from past tragedy, and teaching them how to make beautiful textiles, from handbags to tablecloths to checker boards.

Here are dates for the upcoming shows:

Orlando, Florida: Oct. 4
Charlotte, NC: Oct. 10
Washington, DC: Oct. 17
