CHRISTAN EFFORTS AGAINST POVERTY UGANDA
CEAPU started its activities in Uganda in the year 2015. CEAPU first started working in a region that had been heavily affected by the civil wars from Uganda’s neibouring countries i.e. Congo and Rwanda especially the 1994 Rwanda genocide. Theses wars left many children as orphans thus a call to all of us to wake up and support them to day for their better future. Will you also answer the call to day and join us in this norble cause?

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
