We Need You

needy children

We will do everything that we can to provide help for the needy in Uganda. But without the support of people like you, we will fall far short of those needs. Only with the support of those called to help the children can we hope to find success in our mission.

Please take a moment to read some of the stories of the children that we are working with.

Who We Are

Shepherd girl in Africa

Christian Efforts Against Poverty Uganda is an organization that was started by a former sponsored child of Compassion International. After finishing school and graduating the sponsorship program, Alex Munyantwari tried to help others to the end of his means. But the need was simply too great.

Alex spoke to his former sponsor, now friend, about the struggle with what was in his heart versus what his hands could do. His sponsor told a similar story. As a younger man, he realized that he, alone, could not help those who needed it. But he could advocate for them to create a network with others who, together, could change the world.

And that is exactly what we intend to do.

What We Do

All over Uganda, there are children who go to school with no shoes, no paper, no pencils. There are children who drop out of school at the age of nine because a family member is injured or falls sick. There are children who have never tasted meat, never smelled soap, and never seen a book. And there are people, like you, who want to help them.

We bring together those who need help and those who will help. We are not the answer to the problem. We are simply the voice of the voiceless, calling to the ears of those who will not allow the problem to go unanswered.

Why We Do It

Many years ago, someone took a stand on behalf of Alex Munyantwari, the founder of this organization. That person said that they would not allow Alex to fall away into simply doing the best he could do. That person decided that they would help Alex to be the best he could be. That person’s name was Budeaux and he was twelve years old. Alex continued to progress through school until the school fees became too much for his sponsor. Although Budeaux could no longer support Alex directly, he directed Alex to the Mother’s Union at Willowfield Parish Church who took on his school fees until the end of his senior schooling. When Alex was accepted into university, the Mother’s Union could no longer support him. This is when Dan Yleana Newton took over the sponsorship.

Over his life, Alex had three sponsors. Today, he still remembers each one of them gratefully.

We, as a people, will be judged by how we provide for our children; spiritually, mentally, and physically. Because we, as a people, will one day be replaced by our children.

Without us, there are children all over Uganda that will simply have to do the best they can. So the question remains: who are we if we simply stand aside and let that happen? The answer is simple: we will never let ourselves find out.

How To Help

A child was walking down a beach. The tide had washed up thousands of starfish. The child was picking up starfish, as he walked, and putting them into his bucket.

A man walked up to him and asked, “Are you collecting all of those starfish?”

The child shook his head and answered, “No, sir. I’m putting them back into the ocean. If I don’t, they’ll die before the tide comes back in.”

The man looked down the beach at the expanse of stranded starfish. Then he looked down at the child and said, “Look how many there are. You think you can save all of them?”

The child picked up another starfish and held it up. He answered, “No, sir. But I can save this one.”

You can not save all of the poverty stricken children in Uganda. But you can save one. Please contact us to find out how.

The children in Uganda

Uganda is an extremely young nation: nearly half of the country’s population is younger than 14 years of age.

In Uganda, 2,700,000 children have lost either one or both their parents – half of them as a result of the on-going AIDS epidemic that continues to be a heavy burden to Ugandan society. And others as a result of the previous wars that ravaged the country especially the district of kisoro that lies between the boarders.

Thousands of Ugandan children grow up without adult guidance and care because of AIDS. Many of these children never get to experience true childhood. At an early age, they head households and are in charge of looking after an entire family. At such a tender age thus getting affected psychologically.

Many children are frequently forced to drop out of school in an effort to help their family survive.

Because of HIV/AIDS, war, natural disasters and civil strife, the number of child-headed households in Uganda has been on the rise: around 42,000 children between the ages of 10 and 17 are heading households. Their economic situations getting worse every day.

The under-five-mortality rate in Uganda remains high at 12.8% and in thousands of cases births are not attended by skilled medical staff. Because families cannot afford to pay for the medical services.

Infectious viral diseases that are easily curable in industrialized nations still cost the lives of many children.

Children who lose their parents and end up living in the streets, fending for themselves and begging in order to survive are present in Uganda. Especially kisoro which is a home also for the pygmies (Batwa).

The country is home to around 10,000 street children who are exposed to a harsh and often hostile environment on a daily basis. Children find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle of drugs, poverty and, quite frequently, criminal activities culminating into the death of many of them.

Ceapu  is supporting Ugandan children and young people by providing education, medical assistance and vocational training in kisoro.7

Our sponsored children each have an individual sponsor. We are fortunate to have sponsors from many locations around the world including the United States of America and the United States of England.

We regularly run weekend feeding and school holiday activities for all the students in the program, giving us a chance to spend time with the students and connect with them individually.

SPONSOR A CHILD-EVERY CHILD MUST BE KNOWN,LOVED AND PROTECTED

Old Man Wearing Turban Posing With His Rusty Bike By The Wayside, Pondicherry, IndiaImagine a bicycle wheel representing extreme poverty. The hub is a life in which survival is a daily accomplishment, the spokes represent basic human needs, and the rim represents a life fulfilled. Our mission, Restore hope for orphans and other vulnerable children, brings children living in poverty from the hub of the “poverty wheel” to the rim.

In our Child Sponsorship Program, implemented by Christian efforts against poverty, we blend physical, social, economic and spiritual care together to help each child fully mature in every aspect of life.

When a child is registered in our Child Sponsorship Program (CEAPU) he or she immediately begins experiencing the benefits of participating.

THE BENEFITS OF OUR PROGRAM INCLUDE:

 The Opportunity to Hear the Gospel and Learn about Jesus.

Without an understanding of God’s love, it is difficult to resist despair. Children are particularly vulnerable to the emotional and spiritual messages of worthlessness and hopelessness poverty delivers. But their lives undergo a revolution when they realize God loves and values them.

We devote ourselves to helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds and races experience God’s love and embrace who they were created to be. We do teach God’s Word through regular Bible lessons.

Better Health

Physical and emotional health is the basis for our ability to work, play and develop sound relationships. That’s why we teach children how to monitor their own health for common diseases and provide hygiene training. Children also have the opportunity to participate in sports and exercise where they develop their gross and fine motor movement skills.

We also provide medical assistance; teaching preventative care and helping when more serious needs arise

Better Nutrition.

20190603_181852

It is our desire that Children gain access to clean water for drinking and hygiene purposes. They also receive nutritious food while at the child development center. Children with greater needs receive food and vitamin supplements and have access to therapeutic feeding and food stability initiatives to help them reach their God given future potentials.

Education and Vocational Support

Education is often an unaffordable luxury for children living in poverty, and a lack of education creates a lack of options. It makes finding future work difficult, and it makes children vulnerable to exploitation.

We provide resources for children to complete and go beyond a primary education. In some cases, the cost of school fees, clothing and supplies are provided. In other cases, it means providing tutoring, help with homework, mentorship and, if necessary, participation in a literacy program outside the classroom. Children also learn a vocation that can later provide them employment.

As children grow older, we offer job-skills development and income-generation training, such as: teaching business and entrepreneurship, financing start-ups, providing seed capital and micro-loans.

We also provide a consistent and dependable source of learning and support for caregivers and parents, including literacy training, financial training, parenting and marriage workshops, and seminars to address and prevent domestic violence and child abuse.

Safety and Protection

The protection of children is central to God’s heart for them, and we place the love, care, and protection of children above all other considerations. Our project staff facilitate foster care, counseling, intervention, and medical care for children dealing with abuse, and help with legal resources to represent and defend a child’s rights.

We also help meet basic needs by providing clothing and shoes for children in immediate need and shelter renovation to damaged or unsafe homes.

Socio-Emotional Development

We expand the circle of caring adults actively participating in a child’s life. Both the children and staff know each child’s name, family circumstances, future dreams and immediate needs. They invest in each child personally and relationally, as friends, teachers and mentors.

CEAPU staff offer love, guidance, personal attention, safety and structure to the children and create the environment for the children to develop strong life and social skills, self-confidence and positive self-esteem.

Every child must be Known, Loved and Protected.

Love& Compasion for Orphans

Poverty, at its most extreme form, is destitution. It’s trying to survive without even the most basic of needs, like food, water or shelter. For sub-Saharan Africa, that’s the reality for almost half of the population.

Africa is the poorest continent on earth by a long shot. With the exception of three, 28 of the poorest countries in the world are in Africa.

You and Christian efforts against poverty can play a role in solving this problem.

Our program serves the needy children from kisoro, one of the poorest people.

a

A continent of children: Africa

  • Half of the continent’s population is children, up to 20% of which are disabled.
  • An ever-increasing number are growing up stunted because of the challenges of malnutrition.
  • Diseases like HIV/AIDS are leaving kids orphaned and in charge of their households at very young ages. An estimated 50 million orphans live in Africa.
  • Malaria kills 3,000 African children per day.
  • With a population expected to more than double by 2050, even fewer resources will be available to go around without dramatic change.

 

d

Difficult conditions

  • The infrastructure that most of the world takes for granted is missing or severely limited in Africa. 589 million sub-Saharan Africans live without electricity and cook by burning whatever they can find.
  • Water and sanitation issues cost these countries more than the total economic aid they receive. Of all of the people in the world without access to safe water, almost 40% live in Africa.
  • Hunger is a major issue, and Africa is producing less food per person, with the average plot of land being too small to feed a family.

A solvable issue, with our efforts put together, we can restore hope for the children around the world.

How much does it cost to sponsor a kid?

How much does it cost to sponsor a child? If you choose to sponsor a child, the cost is only $39 per month. Yes. We encourage you to give additional monetary gifts for special occasions, to address specific needs, or simply as an act of love.

What does sponsoring a child mean?

Child sponsorship is a type of fundraising in which a charitable organization associates a donor sponsor with a particular child beneficiary. The sponsor receives updates from the child, typically including photos and translated letters, which helps create the appearance of a personal relationship with the child.

How do I sponsor an African child?

There are currently over 1,000 children who are in need of support to access services. For just $39/month you can sponsor a child in Africa and help provide an orphaned or abandoned child with a loving home. Through your child sponsorship, your sponsored child receives: A safe and nurturing environment.

Is 14 still a child?

Yes, you are most certainly still a child. Some people of that age prefer to be known as a young person, but legally you are still a child. Yes, you are very much still a child. You’ll reach adolescence at 16, legal adulthood at 18, but you probably won’t really feel adult until about 21 years old when you become mature.

How can I sponsor a child?

Sponsor a child, and your monthly gift helps bring essentials like clean water, nutrition, education, basic healthcare, and hope to your sponsored child and the community. When you sponsor a child, you can build a relationship with your child through letters photos and visits.

How do you choose whom to help and whom someone else must help?

Here are 7 suggestions.

  1. Choose a child who has been waiting the longest.

There are children who have been waiting for months and months, hoping and praying that the Lord will bring them a sponsor. Are you the answer to their prayers?

  1. Let your kids pick.

When many of us talk about sponsorship, one of the things we point out is how it has transformed the lives of our kids. Our kids have learned caring, sharing and empathy. They’ve learned to write letters. Sponsorship has sparked their interest in the world around them.

Give your children ownership in the sponsorship process.

The thought and care they put into the decision just may surprise you.

    3. Consider a child who is mentally or physically challenged.

Do you have a heart for children living with a medical condition? Perhaps it’s a population you work with. Consider taking your ministry global and sponsor a child who is mentally or physically challenged.

Your sponsorship will help that child access treatment and support. Your letters and prayers will bring him or her hope.

  1. Browse ceapu.com.

We have thousands of unsponsored children here on ceapu. You may find a child who grabs your heart.

  1. Pray.

Isn’t it ultimately God who leads us down the right path? Pray for guidance. Pray that God will bring you to that one child whom you are perfectly and ideally able to love, nurture and care for.

  1. Find a child who shares your birthday.

Kids think it’s cool to share a birthday — your Ceapu kid will, too. It’s a special link to share with another person.

  1. 7. Let us decide.

If you are ready to sponsor but prefer not to choose, we can select a child for you.

CHANGE THE LIFE OF A CHILD

Every child deserves a strong start – the best chance for a successful future. But too many children right here in the Uganda and around the world aren’t getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. You can help change that.

This best explains the reason for our existence. It costs $39 a month to sponsor a child. Will you consider sponsoring a child through CEAPU today?
