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 and with feedback from Love Mercy Uganda staff, we could see the progression and improvement of communities in a tangible way – families in the program had more food, they could send children to school and begin saving. 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. The surveys and process result in a measurement of ‘collective wellbeing’ that will position every person to achieve their potential. Through our partnership with Huber Social, Love Mercy Foundation began measuring the wellbeing of individuals and communities in northern Uganda.
These are some of the key outcomes from our 2020 wellbeing report.
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.
