Amani Children's Home's core mission is to aid underserved children in their academic endeavors, emotional development, physical wellbeing, through full-time residential care. We are not an orphanage: Amani Children's Home is a residential community center for children whose parents have abdicated custody in a climate of personal hardship or abuse. We support families: our ultimate goal is educational empowerment, reunification with relatives, and holistic healing. The Amani Foundation is a US-based charity that, at the request of the children's home, provides managerial oversight and financial support. The Amani Foundation is the only legal affiliate of, and exclusively supports the children's home.
Today, over fifty children and teens call Amani home, and more attend its on-site nursery program. The children are from diverse ethnic and religious affiliations. Amani works with our regional Social Welfare Office to keep children connected to their cultural backgrounds and natal communities. We believe in equal access to education, empowerment of marginalized communities, the decolonization of charity, and a brighter tomorrow where these children are the heroes of their own story.
