About Amani Institute

Responding to the widely perceived gap between university education and the employment marketplace, Amani Institute's mission is to prepare a new generation of leaders creating careers and lives of meaning and impact. We do this by developing new models of education and training that enable participants to develop the practical skills and networks for long-term career success.

Our core methodology comes to life in our award-winning Post-Graduate Certificate in Social Innovation Management, which runs concurrently in Kenya, India, and Brazil, and which has so far enrolled 440 Fellows from 60 countries in every continent. The program has been featured in Fast Company, Forbes, The Stanford Social Innovation Review, CNBC Africa, Vanity Fair, and The Huffington Post among other publications.

Amani Institute also develops customized training programs for foundations, universities, NGOs, and companies. Our 75+ clients to-date have included the US government’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), UNICEF, Vodafone, Ashoka, Georgetown University, Oxfam GB, CARE, and HIVOS.

Amani Institute is a fast-growing non-profit organization founded in 2011. Today we have “campuses” in Nairobi, Kenya, Bengaluru, India, and Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a staff with deep prior experience in the business, education, and social sectors. In addition, we are fortunate to be advised and supported by a faculty roster of over 50 global professionals at the top of their industries, including a Nobel Peace laureate, experts in leadership development from McKinsey & Company, a major documentary producer, a leading foundation director, and many others.

Through developing individuals who have the knowledge, practical skills, vision, courage, and networks to take on major challenges, our larger goal is to build much-needed capacity in organizations addressing social problems, thus enabling more effective operations across the entire field.
