Mercy Nakayenze came to Awinjo House on January 21, 2011. Her father disappeared, and her mother is extremely poor with five other children. Mercy was staying with an Aunt in a border town, but there were eight children in one small room with the aunt, including some much older boys. The home was next to a prostitute bar, and Mercy wanted to go to a better school.
Mercy is well behaved, and despite her difficult upbringing does well in school. She has a very shy and reserved personality, but allows her personality to shine through when she’s singing in the choir. Not only does Mercy help lead the church choir, but she also helps set an example for the younger children.
