Ekisa means favor/grace in Luganda (the language spoken in the part of Uganda where Amanda served with Soul Hope). Amanda sources all of her goods from Esther, in Jinja, Uganda. Esther opened her store in order to provide for herself, 2 sons, and give back to her village. She started a school that now educates, clothes, and feeds as many as 600 village children! Esther is currently working on starting another school specifically to support young women and girls who have become pregnant.
