Amaani Foundation Trust is a Zimbabwe registered NGO dedicated to improving the welfare of prisoners, ex-convicts, and their dependents through implementing transformative rehabilitation programs.
Amaani achieves this by structuring bootcamps for prisoners to address mental health issues, and by giving them social, financial and mental health support upon release to increase their chances of successful reintegration into society.Learn More
Through psychological therapy and vocational training, this project train prisoners in skills that contribute to self-reliance thereby minimizing their chances of reoffending and subsequently reducing pressure on Zimbabwean’s prison resources. This phase is in the form of a bootcamp, where prisoners are imparted social and technical skills. The curriculum is designed to prepare prisoners for their re-integration into society. In this phase, female and male inmates are mixed, to mimic the real-world situation they would be joining.
This is a yearly campaign that aims to raise sanitary and health care products for women in prison. Most of the incarcerated women have no support structure to provide necessities like sanitary wear, soap, toothpaste etc. Most women resort to cow dung, handing down underwear and sharing toothbrushes.
