There are moments in life where “things” just click. I love it when it happens. It’s confirmation for me that I’m on the right track. That I’m exactly where I should be.

Learning about this organisation, Love Mercy Foundation, and their project: Cents for Seeds is one of those moments where “things” just clicked. As soon as I learned about what they did and who they were helping I just knew that we had to be a part of the change they are creating.

This amazing nonprofit exists to empower communities in Northern Uganda to overcome poverty caused by the horrors of a war (Northern Uganda War) that no person should ever have to experience in their life.

Love Mercy began after Eloise Wellings, Australian Olympian, met Ugandan Olympian and former child soldier, Julius Achon. She promised to fulfill his dream of restoring hope to his village in Northern Uganda.

Thank you Love Mercy for being willing to stand in the gap for women until they are empowered to do so themselves. For women like Genti.

Meet Genti:
“I joined Cents for Seeds in 2010. Before the program, the war had taken everything from me. Even the little I had, they had taken it. I did not have access to this type of beans, I was only given the small ones from the government that do not germinate well in this soil.

Since joining Cents for Seeds, I receive a good harvest year after year. With these beans, I have educated my daughter. Last year, I received a loan of 30kgs and harvested a total of 170kgs. With my yield, I returned my loan, used some for food, sold some for school fees and kept some to replant. Thank you for all that you are doing. You are helping us so much.”

You can learn more about what Love Mercy are creating and the impact you have had by being a part of the movement to empower women and girls out of poverty. Together, we are changing the world: one woman at a time.

Inspired to empower,
Melissa
