WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...
Learn more about the current projects Ama International has been working on to bring change to lives!
Ama Mobile Medical Clinic
PHASE ONE: State-side modifications (steel reinforcement, running electricity and lighting, converting the seats to be removable, a full inspection and tune-up), transport from Grand Rapids to Guadalajara (licensing, fuel cost, title transfer), new tires upon arrival to Guadalajara.
Our Ama bus will allow us to road trip for those in need! The goal is to use the bus as a mobile medical clinic for communities in Mexico by utilizing telehealth opportunities. The Ama bus supports our vision of equitably access to health care, preventative health, and community partnership.
Funding goal: $7000

PHASE ONE: Install windows, doors & complete construction, retouch rain-damaged areas, and network and install 10 computers.

The Connection Center serves as a safe facility for the community to receive legal aid, educational courses (English & Computer Literacy), sewing academy, and other programs still in development.
Immigration Education & Empowerment in Collaboration with AMA
Ama has teamed up with Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates offering courses on the subject of immigration. These courses will include, but not be limited to, the subsets of DACA, Immigration 101, Know Your Rights, & others right here in Kent and Ottawa Counties.

Back to School Challenge
Goal: 1,000 backpacks for students.
In 2019 we gave away 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to the children who needed them the most in the impoverished areas of Zapopan, Mexico. In 2021, we want to create an even greater impact! Our backpacks are locally sourced by a small business in Zapopan. Sponsor a backpack for $20!
Hope for the Holidays
During the Holiday season in 2020, Ama launched our first annual toy and essential needs drive initiative as a movement to do good and give hope by bringing community partners together with a focus on helping families in need, both local & across borders. Through this initiative, 56 Kent County families had toys for their children under the tree in time for Christmas as well as a basket of holiday food and essentials. 800 toys were given away on February 13th in our first ever Christmas in February toy distribution, 19 community sponsors got involved, and the work was featured on both local and national media.
This project will launch this fall with opportunities to buy toys, collaborate, sponsor, and contribute! Want more information?
