WHAT is our mission? Our heartbeat is to shift vulnerable communities from surviving to thriving.
WHY do we do what we do? Many people in this world don’t have the luxury of dreaming or thriving. Instead, they simply live day to day, trying to survive. We believe every human being deserves the dignity of dreaming and the ability to thrive, not just survive. Our heart is to empower vulnerable people in order to see this happen.
WHO do we target? We come alongside families and communities that are comprised of especially vulnerable people – such as elderly widows, orphans, and child-headed households.
WHERE do we work? Our work is currently in the Soroti District of Northeastern Uganda. We mainly partner with indigenous leaders in a village called Amoroto. We support the Amoroto community as well as families in nearby villages called Opuyo, Amen B, Takaramiem, Akaikai, and Awaliwal. As we grow, we hope to expand to other areas.
HOW do we help people thrive? We tackle community and personal development in a holistic way. Shifting a community from survival mode to a thriving lifestyle requires a multifaceted approach. We come alongside local leaders who desire to ignite transformation in any of our six major sectors. The sectors can be easily remembered with the acronym THRIVE:
We've had volunteers teach English as a second language to adults in Amoroto Village as well as run various educational seminars in the past.
Currently, we operate a nursery and primary school in Amoroto Village that we opened in 2015. By partnering with Ugandan leadership at Mercy Seat Fellowship and supporters in the U.S., we've been able to gradually expand the school throughout the years. Today, we have almost 300 students and an amazing school staff.
