Inspiring hope in Tanzania
Partnering in Local Outreach
The Amani School is an outreach to the Digo people of coastal Tanzania, in the small village of Pande. The School was established when a Canadian school teacher working with Africa Inland Mission (AIM) partnered with a pastor from the Africa Inland Church of Tanzania (AICT) to serve an area that has minimal access to education and limited church engagement.
In 2008, the School was established as a kindergarten class under the shade of few palm trees. Amani has since added an additional class each year – as well as a concrete school building! Today over 300 children from 11 surrounding villages receive quality education, vocational training, breakfast and lunch, and Christian mentorship from engaged and caring teachers.

Building and Equipping the High School
The Amani School leadership, with the support of Hope Story, is currently building a brand new high school building to offer secondary education at the Amani School in Tanzania, serving a community without its own high school. The high school launches in January 2022! This exciting new initiative will ensure that vulnerable students graduating from the Amani primary school can continue to receive the high quality education, loving care and discipleship that will shape their future. For most of the students at Amani primary school, the cost and long distance involved in attending high school elsewhere make it simply inaccessible. Lack of education perpetuates generational poverty, teen crisis, and unemployment. But you can re-write that story for vulnerable teens!
