Happy to officially announce that Amani Children’s Home, the non-profit organization supported by Summit Stories, has received a grant from the eBay Foundation’s Bay Area Give Team to pursue its mission and continue to provide support to the Tanzanian Children.

Amani is located in Moshi (Tanzania) and is dedicated to the protection of the country’s most vulnerable population: street children. Founded by locals in 2001, Amani has rescued hundreds of children from the perils of street life, where they face numerous dangers like malnutrition and abuse.

The funds were granted by the eBay Foundation’s Bay Area Give Team as part of eBay Foundations’ employee-led grant recommendation process and will be used for resources and materials to set up a psycho-social counseling service at the Amani Home, so that a psycho-social counselor will complement Amani’s current efforts in both social work and  education.

This summer, I will also spend time volunteering at Amani and meet the Amani Kids, adding a special texture to life at Amani.

“It has been a great experience working with the eBay Foundation team” said Francesco holding the over-sized cheque “and I look forward to bringing this wonderful sign of encouragement and support to Amani”.
