The Story of Baby Amara and ‘The Amara Initiative’

Do you know the story behind the Amara Initiative? It is the story of baby Amara -a very sweet and bubbly baby who choked while being fed by the house girl in March 2012. She was only six months old. Following Amara’s death, her mother -the beautiful Alice Kibagendi set up ‘The Amara Initiative’ with the goal of training as many caregivers as possible on the basics of First Aid, because First Aid on many occasions is the difference between life and death. Read the full story here.

This coming Saturday 5 March 2016, the Amara Initiative will hold a basic First Aid training. I encourage you to have your house girl trained on the same. Even though baby Amara is gone, her legacy lives on through the hundreds of lives she continues to save.
