Amani Centre for persons with disabilities is a non-governmental, non-political, non-profitable non-profit sharing, non-religious and gender-free organization. It is owned by the Roman Catholic Dioceses of Morogoro (No. SO 2098) and is located in the Chamwino ward, Morogoro, Tanzania.
Amani Centre's vision is that intellectually disabled children and youth in the Dioceses of Morogoro are identified and provided with basic needs such as health care basics and vocational education, food, shelter, safe and clean water on a sustainable basis to enable them to live a normal life.
Within the past years Amani has grown and now has three centers: Chamwino main-center, Mvomero sub-center and Mikese farm sub-center. The Amani Centre is also collaborating with various local and international organization including universities.
The Amani Centre is committed to making a positive impact on both the physically and mentally challenged children’s lives and the community outside of the center, through the support of programs and initiatives concentrating on health care, education and raising awareness.
- To provide health care and educational services to children with intellectual and physical challenges.
- To carry out community based rehabilitation to challenged children through home visits, counseling and referrals.
- To raise public awareness on intellectual and physical challenges, in order to remove negative cultural astigmatism's and issues of segregation associated with physical and mental challenges.
- To enable children and youth with intellectual and physical challenges to live a positive life with their families and other community members.
- To combat food shortage and malnutrition in famine prone families with intellectual and physically disabled children.
