WHO WE ARE ?

  • Tender Mercies was founded with a mission to provide holistic care (education, medical, social, emotional and spiritual support) to people who suffer greatly due to disease, contaminated water, and poverty.

    For 11 years, we have stood to this cause and helped hundreds of families transform hunger, dirty water, poverty, and sickness into new hope for underprivileged, disenfranchised, and marginalized populations in rural communities in Africa. We started by renting a 2-bedroom shack, housing 16 children and 4 adults. Today, our state of the art edifice inclusive of solar energy panels and underground water well stands tall as the most beautiful structure throughout the entire village servicing over 1300 families.

About Us

Our children whom we found on the streets, homeless, and oth- ers abandoned by parents and families; today are the pride of the community. Most have moved on to college and set precedence as the first to matriculate at universi- ties in the entire family. What a joy of delight to report this wonderful transformation!

In a community where 95% of the diseases are water borne, we have built 8 water wells and according to the latest government statistics, the mortality rate has se- verely dropped in the neighborhoods we service compared to when we started. Our medical outreach programs have extended to the Albino populations who are under threat of eradication in East Africa.
We are pleased to share our success stories and through friends and partnerships, are able to make tremendous impact. Our school that used to reach 100 children has grown to over 600 children and we are pleased to note the passing rate has in- creased from 36% to 84%. All this has been possible with a combined contributions and strategic partnerships. We invite you to partner with us and visit our programs in Africa. Please, do not hes- itate to contact us should you require any further information or would like to partici- pate in any of our various volunteer or outreach opportunities.
