Amazima Ministries is extremely blessed to have an incredible staff. An organization is only as strong as the people who are working toward the same purpose. Thankfully, we have a clear mission and some of the best people in the world.

Amazima is made up of eight staff members in the United States who serve the mission of the organization. In Uganda, Amazima is the home to nearly 150 staff members – the large majority of whom are native Ugandans. It is always our goal to provide jobs to Ugandans first, before Westerners, so they can support their families and their community.

Please pray for our staff as they work hard to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
