The Amani Children’s Home is located in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania, East Africa.

The home was established on August 20, 2001 by two Tanzanians to meet the needs of the rapidly growing population of street children in Moshi and Arusha.

They named the new home “Amani,” which means peace in Swahili.

Life on the streets is terrifying and dangerous for children, and from the very beginning, Amani has been a haven of peace for homeless kids.

There are normally between 90 – 110 children living at Amani, both boys and girls, who are between the ages of 3 and 16. In addition to the children living at the home, Amani financially support 64 kids who used to be homeless who Amani’s social workers were able to reunify with relatives.
