There’s No “I” In Team

October 20 2014 -

If it were possible, we would feature each and every person who partners with us through prayer and finances on our blog, but the list would be too long. We have been blessed beyond measure with support from all of you and, for that, we are eternally grateful.

While we can’t feature everyone, today we wanted to feature a partner who has been instrumental to our feeding program in Masese.

In 2012, Banded, a company located outside of Nashville just down the road from Amazima’s stateside offices, decided they wanted to give a percentage of every sale to a meaningful cause. With our offices being so close, a partnership was only natural.

Earrings, Oceans, & Hope

September 23 2014 - Introducing El Shaddai

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.

Singing in Masese

August 11 2014 -

As all the children begin trickling into the clearing where Masese school is located, you can see them carrying plates, cups, bowls, eagerly awaiting their heaping bowl of beans and posho to be served piping hot from the kitchen.

There are many children who come and they can spend hours around this area waiting for, what is for some of them, their only meal of the day.

Exciting things are happening in Masese which we are just itching to tell all about! More on that will be coming soon, but for now, please take a minute to watch these sweet faces and say a prayer for them today!

Day of an African Child

June 16 2014 -

Today, all of Uganda pauses to reflect on their greatest strength.

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!

Sweeping For Support

May 26 2014 -

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.
