Last month Amazima Ministries partnered with Ekisa Ministries, an organization in Uganda that serves the special needs community of Uganda, to host Night to Shine. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older.
On one night, February 9, 2018, 537 churches and organizations from around the world came together to host Night to Shine for approximately 90,000 honored guests through the support of 175,000 volunteers! Students and staff at The Amazima School were among the 175,500 volunteers.
Our vision is for every person we serve to know Christ and make Him known, resulting in transformed lives, restored relationships, and changed communities. We can’t think of a better example of this than seeing students, who have themselves been recipients of tangible love, extend that same love and acceptance to one of the most marginalized communities in Uganda: children with special needs and disabilities.
Thanks for joining with us to raise up the next generation of servant leaders in Uganda! Your generosity is helping hundreds of students grow into the men and women God has called them to be everyday.
