Highness Humanity

Amana Manori is deeply committed to philanthropy and targeted charitable activities. While donating to many causes, Amana’s personal philanthropic efforts have a special focus on the underprivileged and the environment. Amana was born in Denmark where her parents met after her mother was forced to flee from Uganda due to political tyranny. Her family immigrated Canada in the 1970’s and life was further complicated by a number of family and financial issues. Amana left home at the age of fifteen and was the first person in her family to gain a post-secondary education in her family. This journey has fuelled her commitment to provide access, empowerment and encouragement to others in need.

Throughout her career Amana has been involved with fundraising and outreach for women’s health, prevention of women/children abuse, provision of basic necessities for families, and other anti-poverty initiatives. Amana has committed significant resources to empowering vulnerable women in the community and at large. She has participated in a multitude of projects and mandates to support women’s education, provide for their families, and help strengthen the institutions they rely upon. Amana is committed to inspiring people to care about the Arctic and global heating.
