Our support is centred around projects at the Amani Centre in Morogoro Town for children with intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities, as well as assistance with education for disadvantaged children.
Since 2019 our involvement has expanded to include Care Ministry through community-based rehabilitation, education and community infrastructure projects in Shinyanga, in close collaboration with the Anglican Diocese of Shinyanga.
The professional expertise within the Friends of Amani Trustees also involves partnerships between British educational and religious institutions with the respective institutions in the Morogoro and Shinyanga Regions.
At the heart of the FOAT aims is to support the poorest members Tanzanian society in the immediate term, whilst enhancing long term development ties.
The Trustees' professional network in the UK and links with previous volunteers is a dynamic resource for much needed financial and professional support. The network of support and trustee liaison spans boarders between not only Tanzania and the UK, but also the Friends of Amani in the Netherlands among others.
The Charity has five major strategies for the raising of funds and awareness:
The Trustees meet four to five times per year and endeavour to visit Amani Centre at least once per year either individually or in pairs. Trustees Briget and Leslie Green also try to visit Shinyanga on an annual basis. Regular communication takes place:
- between the Charity and Amani Centre, and with the broader network of support in the Morogoro Region, which includes the Roman Catholic and Anglican Diocese of Morogoro and the universities;
- between the Charity and senior clergy in the Anglical Diocese of Shinyanga, with responsibility for Care Ministry
