"Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings."
Amiina Ministries exists to demonstrate the Love of Jesus by uniting families across the globe to empower the neglected and forgotten families of Uganda in discovering their divine potential and purpose to become excellent and influential Christian leaders in their communities.
"...that they be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
Amiina Ministries supports children by providing holistic support and addressing all 5 areas of health. This includes Physical, Spiritual, Social, Emotional health and Education.
Amiina Ministries believes that the key to transforming children begins in a healthy home. For this reason, we offer support that empowers the parents and caregivers of the children in our program.
Restoration begins with family.
The enemy is fighting against the biblical values of family because
he knows when families are rooted in Christ, the Kingdom of Heaven is ushered here on earth.
Amiina Ministries is proactive as we step into the stories of vulnerable families.
We partner with the local church to rebuild, repair, restore family.
This is messy and difficult work but as we walk this path with Jesus,
we discover the deep joy of a family being restored back to HIM!
Families linking arms with families across the globe leads to MUTUAL TRANSFORMATION for generations to come.
God made family -it is a reflection of who He is. It is a place where God is to be revealed
and enjoyed. It is the longing of every heart. It is sacred.
- Keith McFarlland
Our programs are intentional in fulfilling the Vision for Amiina. Holistic care is the only way to end the cycle of poverty, preserve families and end the orphan crisis.
Addressing the 5 areas of care is key for lasting generational impact. Our programs value the uniqueness of each child, family and community we serve.
We empower them to discover their divine purpose and potential.
We use the biblical design for family as our model.
Christ's relationship with us overflows in to how we love and relate to each other.
To be known, seen, heard and loved displays the Fatherheart of God. Now more than ever, we need deep roots in Christ and strong connections with one another.
We want our love to not only be transactional, but transformational through Jesus Christ.
Poverty is more than a physical problem. It is also a mental and spiritual problem. When the Gospel brings change and healing to all areas of our lives, we are transformed!
Our mission is to disciple children and families to be Christ-followers with Kingdom vision and values, who will then become the repairers and restorers for their own country of Uganda and ambassadors for the Kingdom, being part of the Father’s solution to the problem they know so well.
“Now go and do likewise.” Archbishop Stephen Kaziimba

children in orphanages have at least one living parent or relative.
Families are broken because parents don't have the skills, resources, or means to care for their children. This often results in abandonment and neglect that gets passed on throughout generations.
For these reasons, we are passionate about bringing healing to the home through their own family.
"To work with local churches and leaders and walk alongside communities to empower, educate and equip through gospel-centered, holistic development of family and community with sustainable solutions that will last."
