Who We Are

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.
