TOGETHER, WE ARE A LIFE GIVING PRESENCE
WE MAKE A GIANT IMPACT
The House that Love Built
Together, we built Tender Mercies. A home for abandoned children in Uganda who can now say, that they have a family, a future and for the first time, their own bed.
We Provide Health Care
We conduct Sickle Cell Clinics, Eye Clinics and Medical Clinics. We teach about hygiene and nutrition to keep families healthier.
Water is Life
AIDSPIRIT USA drills new deep water wells in Uganda that provide clean water for thousands of families. Just as important, we've come up with innovative techniques for repairing wells that have been abandoned.
19 of the children of Tender Mercies have successfully graduated from University or Vocational School and are gainfully employed.
Many of our students have scholarships from individual members of AIDSPIRIT, we're actively searching for more.
Every penny donated goes directly towards those in need
Teach a Child to Grow
AIDSPIRIT USA is aquiring land and creating a "permaculture" to teach skills and create a self sustainable farm and future for the children of Tender Mercies.
Every single contribution goes directly to the welfare of our children and our dedicated Ugandan staff, which included a Manager, Nurse Secretary and Social Worker. Our staff members receive a small stipend for the incredible work they do, ensuring that our operation runs safely and smoothly
Focus on Sustainability
We are currently focused on creating a self-sustaining Permaculture Farm that will provide healthy food for Tender Mercies Home as well as crops to sell, with a goal of making Tender Mercies Home self- sustainable in the future. To make this a reality, we are raising funds to acquire land, livestock, ﬁsh tanks, and other essential resources to establish a permaculture farm.
