The Amani Trust was a Zimbabwean non-profit non-governmental organization dedicated to preventing organized violence and torture, to advocacy for the rights of victims and to rehabilitation of victims through community-based care.[1] It was established in 1993 and had its headquarters in Harare. The organisation has now closed.[2]

In 2002, Justice Minister Patrick Chinamasa declared various NGO's illegal, including the Amani Trust; and also was accused of working with the British government to unseat President Robert Mugabe and destabilize the nation.[3]
