The holidays are special. They’re a time to celebrate, to thank God, to meditate on His faithfulness and all He’s done for us. Without Christ, we would be nothing – Amazima would not exist. We want to do everything we can to honor Him, and we feel like one way we can do that is to honor the staff members He has sent us. We believe we honor Him when we honor others.
That being said, we wanted to share a few pictures with you from our Uganda staff Christmas party. This year we gave each of them a lantern as a Christmas gift. We can’t help but think of the irony of giving lanterns to individuals who are lights themselves - lights to the children in our program, lights to the communities we serve, lights to one another.

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
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
During our HIV and AIDS support groups, we focus on “living positively.” Living positively is acknowledging that while you may have HIV, you still have the right to live a full and productive life. We encourage group members to maintain good hygiene, eat properly, exercise, take medication at the appropriate times, and continue attending doctors appointments, and to help their children or family members do the same.Read the Whole Story
