Friends of Amani Canada is a volunteer organization united in Amani’s mission. The Friends of Amani team is formed by committed, caring people who work together to raise support and awareness for the Amani children in Canada.
For over 15 years, Amani Children’s Home has been dedicated to the protection of Tanzania’s most vulnerable population: street children. Amani, which means “peace” in Swahili, was founded by Tanzanians, and over the course of the past decade has rescued more than 1,200 children from the perils of life on the streets, where they face numerous dangers including malnutrition and abuse. Amani provides healthy food, education, counseling and medical care for every street child who turns to us for help. When possible, children are reunified with (extended) families.
