Post-Grad Certificate in Social Innovation Management / Customized programs for institutions in the Social Change sector Preparing next-generation talent to tackle global challenges by filling the gap between university and the workforce through a new approach to higher education. Amani Institute offers programs for individuals as well as organizations to train talent for the social change sector.

Fellowship Program



Our mission is to develop next-generation talent to address social challenges by creating a new higher education model that offers future leaders opportunities to get an intensive experience of cross-boundary work, develop practical skills to build their professional toolkit, and understand the personal journey this work requires in order to be effective and sustainable as an individual over time. All this while simultaneously reducing the traditionally high cost of top-class global education.

We are not just training a highly skilled workforce to tackle global challenges, but also helping organizations work more effectively in pursuing social change.
Amani Institute graduates students contribute to the growth of the organizations they are placed in, both during their apprenticeships as well as when they are employed full-time. They are also better equipped to start their own ventures.
Finally, our end goal is not to create a large new training institution but to help shape the higher education system. We want to work with leading universities to adopt our Methodology to train the new professionals and leaders the world needs in the 21st century.
