Amani whose meaning in Kiswahili is peace, is a lay voluntary movement, inspired and founded by Father Renato Kizito Sesana, a combonian missionary. Amani is a non-government organization, acknowledged by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Amani is particularly concerned with helping African populations following these two basic rules: Supervising the development of a restricted number of projects, so as to continue being a completely voluntary organization and to limit costs to be supported by contributors. Entrusting each project and each event carried out on African soil solely and exclusively to locals. In confirmation of this is the fact that many of Amani's interventions have been inspired by a group of young Africans gathered together in the community of Koinonia. The main activities of Amani are: the two emergency centres for the street children of Nairobi: Kivuli Centre and Anita's Home; Mthunzi Centre a project for the street children of Lusaka in Zambia; the defence of the Nuba people in Sudan, who are victim of a real genocide. African solutions to African problems.  Offer opportunities, look to the future. With this spirit, since 1995, they have established and supported reception houses, educational, educational and vocational centers in Kenya, Zambia and Sudan. Because every child and young African, forced to live on the streets, in the big cities and in rural areas, has the right to have an identity, a home, food, education, health and the affection of an adult.
