Amani Children's Home

core mission is to aid underserved children in their academic endeavors, emotional development, physical wellbeing, through full-time residential care.

Today, over fifty children from ages 3 to 14 call Amani home, and more attend its on-site nursery program. Our children here are from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. Many children have parents who died from HIV/AIDS or are the children of single parents who have abdicated custody to the state.
