Cents for Seeds is changing the lives of families in Uganda by empowering women and enabling them to provide for their families.

Julius Achon was abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army as an 11 year old boy. He managed to escape his captors, running over 300km to reach his home. Julius soon realised that he was born with a natural ability as a runner. It was this talent that led him to compete in two Olympic Games for Uganda. When Julius returned home, he found his village was suffering. He shared his story with Australian Olympian Eloise Wellings, with whom he formed an instant friendship, and together they started Love Mercy Foundation.

We exist to transform communities in Uganda by using simple solutions to poverty, and by empowering women and girls to access education, health care and income generation.

Our goal is to fund Cents for Seeds loans to 20,000 women by 2020

“Love Mercy seeks to empower communities in northern Uganda to overcome poverty after decades of civil war”

Our Projects

Cents for Seeds
Cents for Seeds is a micro-loan project running in northern Uganda. 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. Beginning in 2011 with just 100 women, Cents for Seeds will reach 13,800 in 2018. Our mission is to provide loans to 20,000 women by the year 2020.
