Rescuing children. Restoring hope. Transforming lives.
Liaison Amani is our very own charity, established in 2015.
Our charity is dedicated to supporting the work of the Amani Children’s Home charity in Tanzania, Africa. The main Amani charity is based in the Kilimanjaro region of North East Tanzania and was established in 2001 to provide a place of peace and safety for street children. It is a cross between a school and a residential home where the children’s emotional, educational and medical needs are provided for.
The aim of the charity is to take children off the streets, give them an education, tackle any drug dependency issues and then, most importantly, reunite them with their families. The charity’s mission statement neatly sums this up as: Rescuing children. Restoring hope. Transforming lives.
Back in 2015, we committed to a specific project: raising funds to establish and run a much-needed brand new satellite centre in another location in Tanzania, Singida – an eight-hour drive and 200 miles from the main Amani centre in Moshi.
Thanks to Liaison staff climbing mountains, baking cakes, jumping from planes, running quizzes, putting on pantomimes and many more activities, it happened. The Amani charity was able to open a brand new satellite centre in Singida, Tanzania and welcomed the first children in July 2016. Each of the children has been rescued from a life on the streets and now has a home at Singida.
Now that’s something we can be very proud of.
We committed to provide the funds to open the new centre in Singida and have pledged our help with the running costs of the home until 2020. Our chairman has made a significant personal donation and has also match fund the amount raised by Liaison staff.
Each year a trustee from the Liaison visits the Amani charity in Tanzania to meet the social workers and founders of the charity but also to view first-hand the impact that Liaison Amani is having in transforming the lives of street children.
