Love Mercy Foundation

It all began at a speakers event hosted by Keith Hong from Run Nation. I was awed by the amount of drive and passion Eloise Wellings has for Love Mercy Foundation and the positive impact she and her team have been making for the families in Uganda. I headed back from the event wanting to do something for them.

About Cents For Seeds: Uganda is home to some of the most fertile land in the world, however, in the years following the war, the people did not have anything to farm with. Love Mercy's mission is to provide loans to 20,000 women by the year 2020. 

Cents for Seeds is changing the lives of families in northern Uganda by empowering women and enabling them to provide for their families. Every $30 donation received, a woman is provided with a 30kg loan of seeds such as beans or sesame, as well as a hand held gardening tool, educational workshops, and access to savings groups. A 30kg loan can harvest a yield of approximately 150kgs.

Cents for Seeds empowers women to reinvest their earnings into food, education, and health care. They also have access to savings and loans groups which enable them to borrow money for emergencies or larger household purchases. The women then give back their loan of seeds at the end of their first harvest so it can be passed on to another like her, making it a sustainable project while reaching more communities.
