What do we do?
Students for Amani is a registered non-profit organisation that was founded by 7 students in 2019. We came together because we had become aware of a common problem: Many people around us were eager to donate to a charity for a good cause but were confronted with the difficulty of finding a reliable and trustworthy association. In addition, we realized that there are many small organisations that have great projects, but unfortunately not many people are aware of them. We wanted to find a solution to these two scenarios.
Hence, we have set ourselves the goal to raise awareness of small-scale and transparent projects that support children and youth rights and link these projects with sponsors and donors from around the world.
We focus particularly on small-scale projects, as these often lack public presence and therefore have a harder time to be supported, even though they generate an important and irreplaceable impact within their local community. At the same time, many sponsors want to know exactly where their money is going and which social returns their donations yield. By supporting different small-scale projects, it is possible for Students for Amani to trace exactly this impact and to offer transparent donation streams.
What distinguishes us from many other organisations is that before collaborating with an NGO we determine for which cause the donations will be invested. Hence, you as a donor have the full transparency before your donation and can choose yourself which project’s cause you would like to support.
Together we want to contribute to make a lasting change and a better world for everyone.

Founded & Run
Focused on empowering children/ youth
We love the voluntary work that we do in Students for Amani. We work very closely together, not only within our team but also with the projects we support. This makes us feel empowered, as we can see the impact that our work generates. By keeping our projects running, we want to lead as an example for other young adults to take action. Remember: It is the little things that count.
The consequences of disease, malnutrition, poverty, weak emotional, social, cognitive as well as physical development threaten the future of children and therefore the future of the societies in which they live. However, children are the most promising link of the society and supporting them today can have an incremental impact on the future state of the world. Therefore, Students for Amani supports children & youth projects. We believe that they are the key to a better future for everyone.
Students for Amani is in close and regular personal contact with the representatives of the NGOs we aim to support. In this way we can receive regular updates on the development and create a closely-knit relationship. On social media, our website and in our newsletters we are giving donors and partners a regular update on the current state of our work and the projects we support.
Social sustainability is one of our main guiding principles. Before Students for Amani decides to collaborate with an NGO, we evaluate whether the NGO in question generates a socially sustainable impact that is worth to invest in. Throughout this process, we focus on lasting educational benefits and empowerment , so that our support helps the community become self-sufficient. Only through independence and self-sufficiency, healthy and strong future generations can be built.
Sponsors want to know exactly where their money is going and which social returns their donations yield. Therefore, we ensure transparency, which is enabled through our personal way of working. Moreover, Students for Amani decides for each NGO individually for which cause the donated money will be invested. Hence, each sponsor and partner can decide which cause and which country they want to support. This enables 100 percent transparent money flows.Moreover, every year we publish a report which informs about the yearly progress, including a financial overview.
