Our core mission at Amani is to empower the future of our community through academic success, emotional development, and the physical well-being of the at-risk children and youth we serve. Unlike traditional orphanages, we not only provide a full-time residential program but also engage in various outreach initiatives. We prioritize long-term healing and family reunification. We lead the way with data-driven approaches to raising children, particularly in trauma-informed medical care, ensuring food security, and enriching their lives with art therapy, sports leagues, and wildlife conservation campaigns. Our commitment to environmental education, using innovative programs like nature journaling, sets us apart. We’re more than a children’s home; we’re a force of nature in social welfare and children’s development.
Amani is completely not-for-profit. All donations are used directly for food, construction, school sponsorship, health needs and minimal overhead costs. Funds from donors contribute to immediate needs (such a monthly food expenses) as well as long term goals (such as expanding and improving Amani’s facilities).
