Joan is 6 years old and the youngest in her family, but she already takes her future seriously. We know this because she pays attention to the smallest of details. Misplacing her school uniform is a big deal in Joan’s world! She is disciplined and outgoing, and we know that someday she will make the best teacher, which is what she dreams of becoming.Read the Whole Story
What a hard, yet miraculous, journey it’s been for Simon! While the story isn’t over yet, we have come to the end of a chapter, and this ending wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity and prayers of many.
A few months ago, we announced to you that Simon was in the United States undergoing multiple procedures at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN. These procedures have gone well. In fact, they’ve gone so well that Simon and Anna, his mother, will be traveling back to Uganda earlier than expected.
For some time, Simon wasn’t able to eat any solid foods. He let us know that once he was able to swallow again, he would like to, “eat a whole cow.”
Well, we haven’t been able to give him a cow, but rumor has it that he did eat five hot dogs for lunch one day.
Simon and Anna head home next week and, if all goes well, he will continue to eat solid foods! Please pray for their trip, for continued health and restoration, and for an easy transition.
Thank you ALL for your support. Thank you to Simon’s doctors in the United States and in Uganda. Thank you to our amazing team. Thank you to Simon’s gracious and loving mother, Anna. Thank you, God, for your faithfulness, provision, love, and power!Read the Whole Story
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
