Physiotherapy for children & adults
In 2008 a volunteer physiotherapist started sessions at the Amani Centre. This has developed into a crucial program that assists children, youth and adults with their physical challenges. The Amani Centre is always looking for both student physiotherapist and professionals to come to volunteer. For students this is a great way to apply what you have been learning and for professionals to give back to those in need.
The physiotherapy department serves three main purposes:
* On-site physiotherapy - physiotherapy sessions take place on the ground floor, using various pieces of equipment that help both children and adults. It is open three days a week - Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
* Home Visits - on Tuesday and Thursday the physiotherapists and social workers go to homes of the disabled to visit families and see how they are getting on in their home setting. This is an important task, as many families can't afford to get to the Amani Centre for physiotherapy three times a week .
* Outreach Program - The Amani Centre staff takes time to visit different part of the nearby rural areas of Morogoro, where they meet with both government and tribal leaders. The staff meets with the leaders in order to seek permission to conduct outreach programs in their areas. The Amani staff talk with the parents of the mentally and physically challenged children. During these visits 3-4 staff members spend on to two days observing how the Amani Centre can help both parent and child.
