Imara International is a rescue mission for pregnant teenagers (aged 14 and under) in Kenya, providing medical care through their pregnancies. Beautiful babies are delivered, mom and baby are welcomed into Imara House. Moms pursue appropriate education, studying for Kenyan Education Certificates. Baking, Sewing and Salon skills are taught in the Imara Skills Center. Babies are nurtured, receiving early childhood education where they flourish. Imara readies these young moms to support themselves and their children with a brighter future.
Imara was founded in 2012 in Plymouth, MN, USA by Carol Erickson. Carol is now on-site at Imara House in Nanyuki, Kenya, continuing to develop and refine our program, seeking out new teen moms in critical need. God has blessed our mission with strong Boards of Directors in Kenya and the USA, bringing their skills and expertise to help accomplish God's plans for these young mothers. Join us in changing lives in Kenya.
