I am so impressed with Fount of Mercy and with the way that they as an organization are truly seeking to empower locals here in Uganda. They are taking a very appropriate approach to helping local grassroots organizations in a long-term, sustainable way. It is so encouraging to see the way Fount of Mercy is encouraging, supporting, and truly empowering organizations throughout Uganda.

I had the life changing experience of participating in Fount of Mercy's Travel with Purpose program last summer. Upon arrival in Uganda, I was completely blown away by both the beauty of the country and the people and the immense poverty and need. After spending a week with a group of volunteers teaching in an orphanage, I can tell you that I have never seen poverty like that before in my life, but I left at the end of the week feeling good out the future of the children that attend that school because of what Fount is doing with the school. Through Fount of Mercy, the orphanage has funding for uniforms for students, meal plans and a library. Fount also provides strategic development expertise and leadership training for the school leadership.

The Great!
