Mission

Our mission is to build up and nurture honest, God-fearing leaders of tomorrow, starting by providing the five basic needs of children: food, shelter, clothing, education, and parental love. Our programs and services empower widows and orphans with job training while meeting their physical and spiritual needs, and support impoverished families by providing schools, fresh clean water, health care and other services they could not attain on their own.

Child and Family Sponsorship and Support

I AM Family Ministries raises sponsorship funds and special donations to meet the needs of vulnerable children, women and families in Uganda and Rwanda including:
- Education, primary grades through college or vocational school
- Food
- Clothing
- Health care
Meeting these needs for our children gives them the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty in their lives.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
At-risk youth

I AM Family Ministries provides vulnerable widows and single moms encouragement, training, and materials with which they can generate an income stream to support their families. These women meet weekly and together produce craft items, school supplies, cleaning products, clothing and more, while supporting and encouraging each other. The products they make are sold at craft fairs and I AM Family Choir concerts in the United States, and local marketplaces in Kampala.
