The Amazima Primary School
Biblical discipleship is the core of who we are at Amazima Ministries International. The Amazima Primary School allows our well-trained godly staff to begin the process of discipleship by introducing Jesus Christ to young vulnerable Ugandan children and giving them the tools needed to follow Him.

Main Entrance & Parking
Welcome to our Buziika campus! On this campus, you will find The Amazima Primary School, Community Engagement offices, and our student and community serving clinic. From this main entrance you can see a covered gathering space for students and families, classrooms, and our administration buildings. This is the first property Katie purchased in the early days of Amazima.
These administration buildings provide office and meeting spaces for our Community Engagement team as well as our Primary School administrative staff.
Grass between the classrooms
This space between classrooms serves as a flexible space where students can meet. Before school and after classes, you will see students filling this space and playing in the shade of the big tree
Standing in the Circle
You are now joining a group of primary students with their teachers. When weather allows, this is a beautiful space for classes to gather.
You now stand in the center of a standard classroom at The Amazima Primary School. These classrooms are designed to facilitate various subjects and typically have 20-24 students each. Generally, there are two classes of students for each grade. After the students graduate from P7 (basically 6th grade), they will move to our secondary campus a few miles away.
A small group of students get some extra help on the letters of the alphabet. Our Primary School is resourced with aides and special education staff, allowing for opportunities for interventions like this throughout the academic day.
Art class is a popular subject at The Amazima Primary School. Students love the opportunity to use their hands to create things! You see students work featured on the walls of the classroom.
The Amazima Primary School Library is often full of students exploring the world through books. It is uncommon in Uganda for a primary school to have such a well-equipped library and for students to have regular access to books. When offered the choice of library time or recess, many of our students choose library time!
Students love any opportunity to play on the playground! Throughout the day, students have opportunities to come to the playground and the soccer field nearby in order to play and get exercise.
End of the Day
It’s the end of the school day! Students excitedly walk out of classes down the hill. They often play on campus before walking or catching a bus ride home.
