AMI are the administrators for the school of which True Trust for Tanzania are supporting.

AGAPE MISSION INTERNATIONAL is a Tanzanian Charity registered in Tanzania, based at Usa River near Arusha, training orphans and indigent young people at AGAPE Management and Vocational Training Centre. The students train in I.T. skills, communication skills, basic Business Management skills and Pre-school Teachers.
