Amazima is a ministry made up of many different people, working together for the shared purpose of living out the love of Jesus by educating and empowering the people of Uganda and the communities we serve. Amazima Ministries was founded by Katie Davis in 2008. The organization, based out of Brentwood, Tennessee, feeds, educates and encourages the orphaned, poor and vulnerable in the country of Uganda. The name we chose for this ministry represented what she longed to see take root in the lives of everyone who came in contact with our ministry. In Luganda, the local language, Amazima (Ah-mah-zeemah) means “truth.” Amazima Ministries desires to reveal the truth of God's unconditional love through Jesus Christ to the people of Uganda.
