2023 Annual Impact Report

God provided abundantly through you and together we exceeded every goal set for 2023!

It is a tremendous blessing to serve with you, and we are looking forward to all that God has in store as we continue to bring economic empowerment and the hope of Jesus Christ to the hard places.

Letter from Executive Director & Co-Founder, Missy Williams:

Dear friends,

When I last visited Uganda, our team had the opportunity to meet the members of Emmanuel Seed Effect Group in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement (pg. 18). Like many of our members, they had been forced to flee their homes in South Sudan, and have experienced the worst possible horrors in the process. But, after completing their first year in our program, their stories, like Cecilia’s, had begun to shift.

She shared, “I am so thankful for my group. After joining, I realized that God is there. God is with us, that is why our group name is Emmanuel. Before, I never had people come to visit me, it’s only me and my husband, but after joining this group I have a mother and sisters.”

With your help, Seed Effect is meeting families at the intersection of hopelessness and the search for opportunity. We pray you’ll be encouraged by the impact you are making as you peruse our 2023 Annual Report. It’s an honor and blessing to serve with you. Thank you for believing the hard places are worth investing in.


Missy Williams

Seed Effect is committed to financial accountability and transparency.
