Mikese is the heart of Amani. Mikese has about 60 acres for the growing of crops and keeping of animals. The food that they grow here is shared between the Centres and on good years can provide a substantial contribution to the food needed to feed the 200 people who are cared for within the Amani Centre.
But it is also home to ten young men with disability who have lived at Amani for most of their lives. They help with the agriculture which, is not only helpful, but gives them a sense of pride and identity. They are part of a very happy family, led by Helena, who is matron to the young men and who keeps them fed and clothed!
