Ekisa was just a shared vision between my friend Emily and I in 2008. We met volunteering together at Amani Baby Cottage in Jinja, Uganda and discovered we shared passion for children and adults with disabilities. A casual comment was made about how amazing it would be to start an orphanage for children with special needs, and that little comment took root deep in each of our hearts. We had our own plans – maybe wait a few years since we are so young, get a "real job" first, and settle down. But God had other plans.
So here we are, two girls totally in love with Jesus. We are taking our call to love the "least" and channeling it into something that will give some very special children the hope and love they need. This is our journey, and we want you to join us.
