Friends of Amani UK was established to support the work of the Amani Center for Street Children in Moshi, northern Tanzania. As a UK registered charity made up of a voluntary board of trustees, we facilitate and coordinate fundraising efforts all over the UK.
For over 15 years, Amani 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 hundreds of 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.
