Derrick is 11 years old. His favorite color is green because green reminds him of nature. While he’s not very talkative, he stays active and can be found playing soccer, helping with chores at home, or preparing for his future in engineering.
We believe in Derrick’s dream of becoming an engineer. One day his mentor, Eric, visited his family and found Derrick connecting electricity to their home. Yes, we’re pretty sure he has a bright future ahead! He can also be found fixing radios and flashlights and making toy cars on any given day.

Since the beginning, the Masese Women’s Beading Circle has been close to Katie’s heart. Every week, she meets with the same group of women to fellowship, study the Bible, and to purchase the jewelry they’ve been working on all week. We then turn around and sell their jewelry on Amazima’s website. This is their form of income and quality of life has dramatically improved for these women and their families because of participation in the beading program.Read the Whole Story
