How does Amani function financially as a non-profit?
 Production and operations are sustained through the sale of products and ministry programs are supported through donations.

Amani Pass the Peace Fund

This is our most popular program to give to because leadership allocates funds to the most pressing needs of Amani. Donations given to Pass the Peace support the sustainability of all holistic programs at Amani.


Amani Children's Peace Camp

Several times a year, our production centers in Africa shut down and the focus shifts to the children of the trainees. This is a day camp called Amani Watoto in Kenya meaning “Children of Peace." Children from all different backgrounds celebrate peace and forgiveness through games, crafts and stories. Donations made to the camp will go to teaching materials, supplies and hot lunches.

Amani Emergency Fund

​​​​Many Amani women live on the edge of survival. Gifts to the Emergency Fund provide support for basic needs when individuals are faced with unexpected crisis. Gifts in the past have been used for food distribution during post-election violence in Kenya, traumatic loss in a family, medical expenses for extreme illnesses and emergency home relocation due to physical danger. A gift today can help provide for a day in the future when the women of Amani face uncertainty and loss. 

Amani Sewing Machines

Stitching is at the heart of Amani’s work and new sewing machines are essential for women new to Amani or working at the younger Amani centers. Donations are used to assist women in purchasing their own sewing machines, which enables them to work at home while caring for their families.


Amani Training Program

Amani reaches the most vulnerable of women in Africa.  They come burdened with financial needs to keep their children in school, a roof over their heads, and a meal for the day.  Women new to the program come with little or no sewing experience. Your donation covers materials, hot lunches and transport that enables new trainees to learn and earn as quickly as possible.



Amani Uganda

Amani Uganda was planted by Simprosa, a long-time member of the Amani ya Juu family in Kenya, who returned home to northern Uganda to pass peace to the war-torn region. The women of Amani Uganda are trained and mentored by women from Amani Nairobi. The center is up and running, but still needs capital to grow during this phase.

Currently, Amani Uganda has been renting for the past 7 years, and in order to be soundly established, freed from persistent rent obligations, and able to expand their operation, they need to purchase their own facility. With their own facility, they will have land to farm in lean times, room to open a café for year-round income, and the room to accommodate more employees. Owning their facility is key to the reliable sustainability of Amani Uganda into the future, so we are hoping that Amani friends and family will band together to set our sisters up to flourish for years to come.


The Livingstone

The goal of every Amani center is to have a Café where people can come and have a cup of coffee or enjoy homemade soups and salads all in an atmosphere of peace and beauty.  Over the years, thousands of visitors have enjoyed the Amani Garden Café in Nairobi, Kenya as a place of warmth and rejuvenation.

We are proud to announce that Amani Chattanooga is setting up their own café in their facility where they already have a product distribution center and a boutique showroom.  We are looking forward to the many visitors who will be introduced to Amani’s mission of peace through the Livingstone Café.  

Your donation to The Livingstone Café will have an impact all the way back to Africa.  Those who visit the café will also have an opportunity to purchase beautiful, handmade products that support the Amani women in Kenya and Uganda.
