Grosvenor Church, Barnstaple, is delighted to partner with Amigos; practically, financially and prayerfully. Many of our members have visited Kira Farm Development Centre to experience first-hand the incredible impact of how lives are being changed from the inside out - a true demonstration of love in action. “Visiting Kira Farm for the first time was life-changing in so many ways,' says Lois Miles from the Grosvenor Youth Group. 'I went there with plans to make a difference, but found that the real difference was made in my life. The beautiful people and country have a huge place in my heart.” Just Office, a retail outlet providing office supplies, kindly donates everything from office furniture to envelopes to Amigos. The support of Just Office makes a huge difference to our UK running costs and we're very grateful for their continued commitment.

We look forward to our regular updates and seeing Kira Farm and the students go from strength to strength. We hope to enjoy such a relationship for many years to come, continuing our support for Amigos and hopefully encouraging other local businesses to do the same.’ Rotary clubs locally and internationally have been a huge support to Amigos over the years.

Southgate Estates, an ethical estate agency based in Exeter, supports Amigos practically and financially. ‘When I visited Uganda and saw the life-changing projects Amigos is committed to I was completely overwhelmed by the difference a few pounds can make,’ says Laura Newall, Southgate Estates Director. ‘To stand on Kira Farm before the first students commenced their training was both a privilege and an inspiration. The small proportion of our fee which we send over to Uganda really does help transform the lives of those less privileged than ourselves!’ Toptown Printers has been incredibly supportive of Amigos since our inception. They have printed thousands of greetings cards, Christmas cards, newsletters and promotional resources, which over the years have added up to a huge saving in print costs. We’re extremely grateful to Toptown Printers and their dedicated workforce for great print, which enables us to communicate to our supporters effectively. Holy Trinity Church, Barnstaple, feels very privileged to support the ongoing work of Amigos. Members of the church have visited the projects in Uganda and seen first-hand the life changing impact of Kira Farm and the Child Sponsorship programme in the lives of many young people who would otherwise have little opportunity to break out of the cycle of poverty. Not only do Amigos offer practical support, they also bring a message of hope through their love and commitment to Jesus Christ.
