This Year’s Christmas Charity - The Amos Trust

Amos Trust is a small, creative human rights organisation, committed to challenging injustice, building hope and creating positive change. It partners with vibrant grass-roots projects around the world that have unique local experience, expertise and connections. Collaboration is at the heart of everything the Amos Trust does. Current projects focus on promoting the rights of street children, creating a just peace for Palestine and building sustainable rural communities in Nicaragua and India.

Amos Trust’s Palestinian partners run community programmes to promote creative, non-violent resistance to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza – and work to relieve the stress and despair that the occupation causes within these communities.

More information about the charity can be found on their website www.amostrust.org

Our link with the Amos Trust is through Kez Robinson. Kez is the minister at Wakefield Baptist Church, former minister at Barnoldswick and YBA Mission Enabler. She will be undertaking a marathon in Bethlehem to raise money.

Our Christmas offerings and any money donated in lieu of sending individual Christmas cards will go to the trust. You can also sponsor Kez directly on her Just Giving page.
