Mercy joined Premier Skills in 2021.
She is now a coach at Women in Football Uganda in Mukono district. A community-based organisation that she founded with other two female colleagues to mentor girls in the communities using football.
Through Premier Skills, I discovered that we can do more for young people using football apart from playing. We have been able to mobilise girls to mentor them in other life skills to become better people in the community and that has given me a lot of joy.
I am determined to support more girls improve their football in schools and connect them to sports scholarships for their secondary education. We also scout for talented young people that dropped out of school in eastern Uganda through the Mordechai Mentorship Club and create pathways for them to play professional football.
