Our Mission

It began as a dream. The Amazima School. An African classical Christian secondary boarding school in Jinja, Uganda. A dream that drove us to our knees in prayer.

After four years of planning, designing, building, and much prayer, that dream became reality. On February 13, 2017, The Amazima School opened for its first day of classes. Located on 70 beautiful acres just off the Nile River, approximately of 800 vulnerable children will receive an exceptional Christ-centered classical education from a Ugandan perspective.

We provide every student with a loving home, invested house parents, excellent teachers, nutritious food, great extra-curricular opportunities, strong academics, and vocational studies all within a biblical worldview. We believe God made each of these children in His image which gives them infinite and eternal value. The Amazima School is a unique and transformational opportunity to educate and empower the young people of Uganda with God’s love. Please come join us in this incredible adventure!
