In December of 2006, 18-year-old Katie Davis traveled to Uganda for the first time. She was immediately captivated by the people and the culture, and knew she would be back. Less than a year later, Katie returned to Uganda to teach at an orphanage and it has been home ever since.
Despite her own plans, God led Katie to found Amazima Ministries in 2008 and made her a mother to 13 beautiful girls by the time she was 23. The word “Amazima” means “truth” in the native Luganda language and speaks to Katie’s desire to see lives transformed, relationships restored, and communities changed through the truth of Jesus Christ. While Amazima has lived out its mission through a variety of programs and outreaches over the years, its mission has always been to live out the love of Jesus by educating and empowering the people of Uganda and communities it serves.
Today Katie resides in Uganda with her husband Benji and their 14 children. She is the author of New York Times Best Seller Kisses from Katie and the Chief Visionary of Amazima Ministries.
