When asked why being a part of Heartily Souls is so important to her, Stacey remarked “It’s important to me because I’ve seen first-hand the affect third-world poverty has on men, women and children. As a social worker, I think it’s extremely important to help disadvantaged groups who often lack the means and resources to better their lives. I love knowing that my work is teaching people “how to fish” so they can lead better lives”

OUR IMPACTS

we’ve helped change hundreds of lives for Ugandan children/ youth. Here are just a few of the things we’ve recently been able to accomplish.

  1. We provided school uniforms, textbooks and exam books to hundreds of Ugandan youths. In 2021, we provided hundreds of pencils and pens and purchased over hundreds exam books to help students take exams.
  2. Our mentoring program has helped students learn important life skills including animal husbandry, farming, and sewing. These skills help youth become self-sufficient, supporting themselves and supporting their families.
  3. We have provided medical supplies to poor community members who could not afford to visit a doctor or get medicine.
  4. We have fed hungry youth and hungry families.

Heartily Souls changes lives and we use quantitative and qualitative data to measure our on-the-ground success in Uganda. We regularly evaluate our program and our on-the-ground team in Uganda helps us make sure all program goals are being met.

For each of our imitative we have a series of questions we use to evaluate effectiveness. Here are just a few samples.

Child Sponsorship 

  1. Has the sponsorship money provided helped raise the living standard of the designated youth?  Do they have access to new school uniforms and has their access to food changed since receiving sponsorship?
  2. Have they been able to develop a relationship with their monthly sponsor? What does this relationship look like?
  3. Are they more engaged in school? What do their teachers say about their participation since sponsorship.

Mentoring program

  1. Has the school identifed at-risk youth as promised?
  2. Have at-risk youth been referred to our program?
  3. Has the student participated in our income generating program?
  4. Have they learned new skills to provide for themselves and our families?

Support Self-Sufficiency

Addition projects support our youth and encourage them to become self-sufficient. Some of these projects include animal husbandry program which raises pigs and helps youth gain skills for financial independence and gardening project.  Gardening projects help youth learn to grow local fruits and vegetables. Once these items are harvested, they can be used to feed families and they can be bartered for other necessary items.

SEWING PROJECT

 Teddy, Sewing Trainer

Our sewing project teaches students how to sew. They are provided gentle instruction so they can make clothes for themselves and for their families. After they have mastered basic skills, it is our hope they will use these skills to earn money as seamstresses and tailors.

FARMING PROJECT

Our farming program is important since so many of our youth reside in rural Uganda. Students learn the most effective way to raise crops to get the biggest yield. Then they harvest the crops using what they have grown to feed their families.

Produce can also be bartered and can be sold at local markets.

PIGGERY PROJECT

Via our piggery project, youth learn how to care for, breed and feed pigs. Once the pig is bred, they provide important food sources for families.

Pigs can be bartered for food, and as payment for other necessary services.
