Amani Centre Programs & Initiatives
- Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) helps over 5,000 intellectually and physically challenged children and youth in Morogoro. CBR is a growing program as the public’s awareness increases about the Amani Centre.
- Primary Health Care - Currently there are three physiotherapist onsite and two volunteers who come weekly to the Amani centre. The children are sent to a nearby health clinic to receive medical aid as needed, a bill is sent to the Amani Centre at the end of each visit.
- Special Needs Education- Currently there are only six teachers to educate, train, socialize the children according to their challenges for over 87 physical and intellectually challenged students.
- Knowledge, play and care for non-special needs- Currently there are 6 teachers who teach kindergarten through primary for over 210 children
- Friends of Amani- Currently there is a community in England who sponsor and donate for the enrichment of the staff and the children, the program invites for any person looking to help the Amani Centre in any capacity.
- Small-scale farming- The Amani Centre operates 1 farm and over 60 acres of crops, the farm consists of chickens, goats and bees; the crops consist of maize, mango trees, orange trees, lemon tress, sunflower, cow peas, pumpkin, and white beans. The crops provide food for the Amani Centre as well as the famine prone families around the Centre.
- Public Outreach- The Amani Centre conducts seminars and campaigns to raise awareness about intellectual and physical disabled children and youth. One of the biggest issues disabled people face here in Africa is the negative stigmatism surrounding disabilities, the beliefs are that the mother is cursed or God has cursed the child.
- Professional Volunteers & Student Volunteers- The Amani Centre welcomes all people to come visit and stay at the centre as either a professional volunteer who comes to offer his or her skills and time or as a student looking to gain knowledge and cultural enrichment.
- also you can decide to pick a child or more than one to be his/her sponsor, they have needs just like any other human being.
