How to Contribute
I am not hesitant to say that indeed the Amani Institute is allowing me to live a life of meaning and impact, and of course what I am looking forward to do for my community and my country. I think we all have come to realize that Amani is a special program.DANIEL CHRISTIAN (Burundi), Kenya Class 5, and currently a refugee in Kenya
I would like to thank you for the amazing experience that you offered me. It has been an amazing journey where I learnt SO MUCH in 5 months that a school/university didn’t teach me in 5 years. I would like also to thank each of you for the advice and support you have given me!”LOUBNA SADIKI (Morocco), Kenya Class 1.
The Ushindi Scholarship Fund
The Ushindi Scholarship Fund was set up in memory of one of our first Fellows, Siegfried “Ushindi” Rossmueller who unexpectedly passed away in December 2014. His love for Africa, the arts, and the ocean live on in this scholarship that supports Amani Fellows who fit any of these criteria: a) from an African country; b) an artist; c) working on the environment.
Special thanks go to the Sophia Foundation, South Africa, who is supporting the Ushindi Scholarship Fund on an ongoing basis.
