What is “The Impact Report”?
We commit to measuring our impact on the ground in Uganda each year, by surveying a group of the women in Cents for Seeds
Love Mercy Foundation has been operating Cents for Seeds in remote villages in northern Uganda for the last 7 years. On each of our trips, we could see the progression and improvement of communities in a tangible way – families in the program had more food, they seemed happier. How could we know for sure? We decided to measure it.
Huber Social create a benchmark for organisations to track their impact using a social value metric framework based on wellbeing. What?! The surveys and process results in a measurement of ‘collective wellbeing’ that will position every person to achieve their potential.
2020 Impact Report
13% increase in wellbeing!
These outcomes show that Cents for Seeds does not only provide a family with food, income, access to health care and education.
Cents for Seeds is improving the overall well-being of individuals in the project and as they continue in the project, their well-being continues to increase.
To measure overall well-being, individuals were asked about their ‘satisfaction with life’ – something we can all relate to. Well-being was shown to increase by 13% for women in the project.
When you give a gift of $30, $60, $1,000, or any amount, you are significantly contributing to increasing the overall wellbeing of individuals and communities in northern Uganda.
Your impact is directly related to an individual feeling safe in their environment, to building resilience and establishing connection among the community. You are empowering families out of poverty, you are changing their lives forever and you are helping to improve their satisfaction with life.
If you would like to contribute to Cents for Seeds, now is the perfect time. Seed loans are being handed out to 17,800 households in June, just in time for planting as the rainy season rapidly progresses.
