Ekisa Ministries InternationalLas Vegas, NV
Ekisa Ministries supports children with disabilities so they can thrive in families and communities. We envision a world where every child grows up in a family, celebrated and loved, despite his or her disability. We dream of children being cared for by parents, relatives, or neighbors who can offer them the long-term, unconditional love, attention, and support they need. Our vision sees the end of discrimination of children and adults living with disabilities in Uganda and hopes for celebration of differences. We dream of the day when no more children need institutionalized care. Until the day comes when Ekisa’s services are no longer needed, we will stand in the gap – to give respite to children who need love and care, and empower parents and families to best care for their children.
