Review for MERCYS VILLAGE INTERNATIONAL, El Segundo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Jeami Duncan visited Uganda a few years back and fell in love with the country. Since then, it has been her heart to build a school for the children of Uganda: Mercy's Village. She has remained steadfast in her vision to educate the poor and underrepresented. Last year, I visited Uganda for three weeks and was able to witness firsthand the efforts for Mercy's village. Mrs. Duncan has purchased the land and employed the local people to aid in her building project. She is providing construction jobs as well as teaching jobs for Ugandans. She plans to open her school by next year. The greatest quality of Mercy's Village is its vision to provide for the practical needs through compassion and action, and equip the country to take care of its people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
