Desire is 8 years old and has dreams of becoming a nurse one day. When she is at school, she works hard and is always positive. This past year she performed 2nd in her class! If she’s not at school, she loves playing with her doll, Sarah, skipping rope, and playing football.
When we asked Desire if there was anything she’d like to say to her sponsors, she responded, “May God bless them.”
Thank you to the Amazima sponsors who have joined hands with us to educate and empower Desire. We can’t wait to see Desire reach her dreams!Read the Whole Story
In Uganda, about 75% of the population is engaged in some type of agriculture. For many, it is the sole income for their family and their only source of food. One can imagine the anxiety that comes with waiting to see if the crop is going to be sufficient during harvest time.
With conventional farming practices, the average Ugandan produces 200 kilograms of beans per acre. Using the methods of Farming God’s Way, a conservation farming technique, the Amazima farm is producing kilograms of beans per acre!

Today is the Day of the African Child.
This year the focus was placed on the importance for all children to receive a quality education.
Mentor Annet wrote a poem and a song for a select group of Amazima children to perform at the ceremony. Annet said that the children performed well and were very appreciated.
Today we stop to value and cherish the children of this continent and of Uganda in particular.
We are blessed beyond measure by the children God has placed in our lives here.
We hope you enjoy their performance!Read the Whole Story
