Amani was founded in as a voluntary organization to provide counselling services for people with emotional and psychological problems, as well as training counsellors. The thrust of Amani from its inception was directed towards the restoration and development of the dignity of the human person, which would be achieved through improving mental health care within the community.
Amani has highly qualified staff who undertake in - service training regularly. Amani has Satelite Centres in Kisumu, Nyeri and Mombasa. This has changed the focus of future programmes, no longer confining them to a central office but expanding to meet the needs of communities outside Nairobi.
