The Cause

Amani provides a safe and loving home, nutritious meals, and medical care to homeless children in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Amani’s trained caregivers make sure that each child rescued from the streets is given love and attention as well as important life skills, restoring hope to their lives.

The children receive three healthy meals a day. A typical meal is rice and beans with a side of cooked spinach. Many children arrive at Amani malnourished from living on the streets. With good, nutritious food, they quickly become healthy and active.

Medical care is an important service that Amani provides to the children. Amani has a full time nurse who cares for all the children’s medical needs, from bandaging scrapes and bruises to treating more serious illnesses like malaria, TB and HIV. She gives weekly health lessons to the children on topics such as personal hygiene, STDs and nutrition.

By sponsoring my trek up Kilimanjaro in July, you will ensure that these children receive the primary care they need and the chance for a new start that they wouldn’t otherwise have.  To make a donation, please visit the link below. Thank you! 🙂
