KISORO ORPHAN CARE MINISTRY/CEAPUGANDA

Taking care of 50 children is no easy task and it’s not enough, but through our person-to-person sponsorship program, most of them have been connected to sponsors. Sponsors have lovingly “adopted” these children into their families. They pray for their sponsored children, Love and care for them and above sacrificially .Dorcas leading her classpay their school fees on a termly basis

Generous donors in all over the world change the lives of little ones, helping to ensure them with good health care, instilling values and making an investment in the future of our world. It could be probably be your turn to partner with us in this. Providing education to an orphan is transforming their future dreams into reality.

KISORO ORPHAN CARE MINISTRY/CEAPU

Lining up for bread &breakfastEvery day you and I are counting the costs of things. We do it with clothes, food, cars, homes, extracurricular activities, the way we spend our time and energy, how many times we hit snooze on the alarm clock, the friends we hang out with and even the ones we don’t. We do it intentionally; we also do it subconsciously.

IMG_1390

In the economy of our daily lives, we are perpetually assessing the value of things, relationships and opportunities by determining whether or not the benefit of having those things in our lives will be worth the costs required of us to get them. This constant evaluation of costs, worth and ultimate value are a part of our normal daily life.

As we  interact with people all over the country on the topics of caring for orphans and other vulnerable children(OVC’S),we find these issues of cost, worth and ultimate value to be significant ones – both for those who are already involved and those who are hesitantly considering it. It’s real in my own family as well as we continually learn to embrace it as a central component of who we are and what we do. We count the costs, consider the implications they will bring on our family and ultimately have to answer a very important question – Will it be worth it?

COUNTING THE COSTS

IMG_1880

Nobody stands in front of a church on their wedding day or sits at a table and signs mortgage papers without having seriously considered the implications of what they’re about to do, but everyone who ends up in those situations has ultimately concluded one thing – it’s worth it. Consider your successes how hard or easy was it to be obtained honestly after hard decision follows success and celebration.

The same is true for caring for caring for OVC’s – it will cost you. Maybe some money, certainly some time, definitely some energy, and absolutely some emotion, convenience and comfort. No one ever said, “I want to care for them so that my life will be the same.” No. Nothing will be the same. Everything changes because of it. It’s important to be aware of the costs; to not go into this with rose colored lenses on. Yet, at the end of the day, we must accept the costs to us as worth it for the gain a child may receive. This is exactly what Jesus has done for us. He joyfully laid down the infinite value of His own life so that we might know the immeasurable worth of being fully and unconditionally loved in Him. Caring for OVC’s and adoption are beautiful expressions of that gospel. They demand a selfless, costly and potentially painful love for the sake of a child gaining much as we willingly give all. As we labor to love with the love we ourselves have received from Jesus, we do so in a cloud of uncertainties and unknowns, but with the confidence of one guarantee – it’s always worth it. A child is always worth the process and more valuable than the costs. Always.

Edith set for school

Let me be as honest and encouraging as I possibly can be: If you keep thinking about it, talking about it and praying about it, that’s probably a sign that you would be great at it and just need to do it. The issue for many isn’t whether or not they are “called” to foster or adopt and care for those in need, but what it will cost them if they actually do it. It’s easy sometimes for Christians to hide their insecurities, concerns and fears under the veil of spiritual language, claiming they’re still “praying about it” and determining whether or not they are “called” to do it, when that matter has already been resolved by God in His word and in their hearts. At the risk of sounding unspiritual let me suggest this: certainly not for all, but definitely for some, perhaps the most spiritual thing you can do is stop praying about whether or not you should do it – and just do it, choosing to believe that the costs you will incur will be worth it for the gain a child may receive. I know this is not where everybody is, but I also know this is where someone is. Perhaps that someone is you.

 

WE CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO

But when it’s all said and done, let’s spend less time talking about what it will cost us if we do care for them and more time talking about what it will cost these kids if we don’t. Kids in crisis can’t afford to wait until it’s most convenient for us to care for them. They simply don’t have that luxury. And maybe we don’t have that luxury either. Perhaps the question we need to be asking ourselves over and over and over again – whether you’re in the middle of it already or just now considering the possibilities of it for you and your family – is not “Can we afford to do this?” but rather “Can we really afford not to do this?” A slightly different question with significantly different implications.

IMG_1991

At the end of the day our “no” will be much more difficult on them than our “yes” will ever be on us. So let’s resolve to never neglect their perspectives in our own personal considerations about whether or not we should care. What we stand to lose pales in comparison to what everyone else, especially these kids, stands to gain.

The good news for all of us is this: the gospel has the unique ability to turn costs into privileges and inconveniences into opportunities. It has the distinct capacity to completely empty us while at the same time abundantly fill us. Perhaps in the end you will find those costs that once concerned you will become the very things that now compel you – to give all so that a child can gain much. Will it be hard? Yes. But will it be worth it? There is absolutely no doubt.

Thank you

HOW MANY ORPHAN CHILDREN DO YOU THINK THERE ARE?

 

20171224_171954There are a huge number of orphan children in Uganda. In fact, more than 2.9 million children are considered orphans by one definition or another. Sadly, there are orphan children who are even abandoned by the statistics! World health organization counts only those who live on the streets, but the numbers out there suffering and lamenting in poverty are just overwhelming.

 

WHERE DO ORPHAN &VULNERABLE CHILDREN COME FROM?

 

20171223_135547First we can address the obvious…things that we read and hear about in the news all the time: War, disease, poverty, natural disasters, abandonment, and accidents are among some of the leading causes. These can be directly associated with orphans by the definition of a child who has lost one or both parents. Within and aside from the aforementioned are: cultural pressures, neglect, abuse, child slavery, religious inequity, child prostitution ETC. These are more closely associated with children without parental care that may not be a child that has lost one or more parents. They may live with a relative or neighbor or are on the street or in the jungles and subjected to one of the prior mentioned abuses. Sometimes they simply live with a blind, ill or very old relative that loves, but cannot care for them. They are many varied combinations that contribute to a child suffering without parental care, but the results are the same, regardless of the cause. Statistically the subgroups such as these would not be counted as orphans, but by attributes associated with abuse and neglect, they are one and the same in terms of outcome for the child. Perhaps in some ways their status almost makes them invisible and the danger they are in, is misunderstood by many not familiar with their culture. You could be in position to help one such a child.
WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENS TO THE AVERAGE ORPHAN CHILD?

Beyond suffering and the ultimate tragedy of death, the children that do survive, often do so in ways that demeans and criminalizes themselves and brings suffering to others as well. The sad reality though, is that if a good and caring person is not there to provide what they need, They might grow up to become terrorists, rebel armies with child soldiers, child traffickers, even less – than- good- willed- relatives who want a personal slave. The end result is truly heartbreaking as many of the orphan children out there will die of starvation and issues related to malnutrition. They will die from preventable diseases. They will die at the hands of others and themselves. They will spend much of their life in jail. They will do harm to others and impact the world in a negative fashion. This calls us all to take action and help them become what God wants them to be in the near future. By your commitment to sponsor one of these, we can overcome.

BUT IT’S A MASSIVE PROBLEM; CAN WE REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE? YESSSSSSSSSS WE ARE ALREADY MAKING A DIFFERENCE.VISIT US WWW.CEAPU.COM

Alex,Liz,Tomthy,&Winfred

 

Perhaps the biggest tragedy of all is that we know how to turn tragedy into triumph…we just need more help doing it! We know how to turn terrible statistics into wonderful statistics. And when you help the children, you are doing a wonderful thing, but the good you have done doesn’t stop there. It spreads! BELIEVE THIS Dan Yleana Newton one of the good hearted sponsors decided to sponsor Alex Munyantwari through University. The young Man graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in development studies. Guess what Alex decided that he would go back deep in the village and help other children. This resulted into the birth of the current CEAPU-Christian Efforts against Poverty Uganda. This should be an encouragement to you that sponsoring a child is something worth for you to do today.

 

The world and global society benefit when we help orphan children.

Instead of harming themselves and others, they grow up to be responsible, healthy, adults that give back to the community they live in instead of taking away from it.

The good that is done, is generational.ceapu

When we give the children what they need to THRIVE, not just survive we break the cycle that creates orphans in the first place, and the next generation of children will have YOU to thank for the fact that their parents didn’t abandon them…but instead raised them in a healthy and loving environment. There will be less crime, less disease and less orphan children to take care of!

WHY HELP ORPHANS

Whether you are a Christian, practicing perfect religion( James 1:27), or are just a caring person who loves children and recognizes our responsibility to the orphan children of the world…or both, there is no greater impact you can have on the future of our planet, than you will have by caring for our greatest resource, the innocent and deserving children who have been left to suffer. There are more than 2.9 million of them. Don’t think they will have an impact on our Country?

 

                                  BUT WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP?

In order to understand the best way forward in helping children without parental care, we must first understand the following:

20180123_191109Every person ever conceived, was born with specific needs. Those needs include, critical needs such as food and shelter, security, the knowledge or belief that one is of value to themselves and others. Children will first seek their critical needs…and the supply of those critical needs will instill a learned behavior. And then they will seek the other needs as well, and the source of those needs will again become a learned behavior. For example, if a starving child learns that the surest way to not be hungry is to steal…they will learn that behavior as a means of survival. If being for example, a child soldier, or a terrorist means that they are fed, clothed and receive attention and praise from an adult figure, again they will learn that these types of behavior bring them rewards…supplying them with their needs. In a sense they will become what they have learned in their struggle to survive and belong. In essence, every orphan child will either perish or receive his or her basic human needs from some source…good or bad. It is up to those who have the means and the opportunity, to be sure that the source of their care is a source with good intentions. If we don’t, it will be the slave traders, ill-willed relative, thieves, gangsters, warlords and terrorists that do.

Child sponsorship helps to provide a solution to this.

SIMPLE WAYS YOU CAN HELP

There are people this world that exists and people look at them and regard them as problems to the community and forget that it’s not their fault but that how God intended it. On another hand, there are people who live their life lavishly having everything they would want in life. They are not only enjoying the joy of essentials but also have what they want and desire; a luxurious living providing them an extra comfort. Yet there are other people who cannot even afford the basic requirements of living. They do not have shelter to live, food to eat, and clothes to wear. People that have extra are living a comfortable and a posh life. While those who have barely the vitals are fighting each day for life. They fail to meet the basic requirements. Friends there is no one to blame if you have nothing thank God for your life and if you have abundance also praise the Lord and ask you self “what can I do for the poor”

There are people who have much more than they need to live while others have barely enough to survive.

Poor people do not have enough clothing, food, education and healthcare. Being poor means deprived economically, politically and socially. They hardly get opportunities. They have inadequate nutrition, higher risk of diseases and lack access to healthcare and basic essentials for living resulting in low achievement. As if this is not enough the children of the poor never have access to education unless “you” the rich intervene.

One cannot make such people to have enough but you can at least help them achieve the essentials of life and lead a prosperous life. Helping the poor and needy people is a good deed. Caring for the poor and needy people and helping them is a noble endeavor. The more you give to the poor and needy people, the more you strengthen them. If you give them the chance or opportunity especially for their children to go to school, you’ll see an effective and long-lasting improvement in their lives. Change your perspective. Instead of considering them as a project to help, view them as people to love and respect.

The following are a few ways in which you can help the poor and needy people.

  1. Moral Consolation

1One of the better ways to help the poor and needy people is to give them a hand up rather than a hand out. Giving them moral support, showing heartfelt humility and respect makes them aware that someone really does care about them and trying to improve their condition. By providing them with the opportunities to improve their condition on their own would increase their self-esteem and help them in overcoming barriers they face every day. Work with the poor and needy people and help them discover their own capabilities and capacity and putting them to use at the right place at the right time. Support them and let them know that they have something of value which can be used for meeting their basic requirements.

  1. Social Media

2Social Media has become one of the most used way to help the poor and needy people and perhaps, the easiest way as well. Through the use of Social media and Social Networking Sites like Facebook or twitter, one can raise his or her voice and create awareness and get a helping hand; can connect to various charity organizations or community centers involved in helping the needy people; can buy products online from websites that donate a portion of their proceeds to charity that helps the poor and needy people. If you can just spare a moment and visit us at www.ceapu.com/contact.You can choose to donate to our work or sponsor a child for only $39 a month.

  1. Personal Financial Help

3Individuals can help the poor and needy people monetarily also. Providing financial assistance to the poor can help them solve the basic problems of living. By providing money to the poor and needy people, they can get the essentials of living. One can get associated with charitable houses and donate money there to help the needy. By providing monetary help to the needy people, they can get meal for their family, a place to live or some clothes.

  1. Fund Raising

4One can join the fund raiser community or engage himself or herself with some organization who is involved in raising funds for the poor and needy people. They can join various activities and plan various strategies for fund raising like help in creating awareness in the society through various modes, conduct various shows like road shows, etc. They can organize activities and become an active member of an organization’s board or membership. Fund raising can involve donating items for free and holding auctions for those items. This would help raise funds. You can write to us and we will see what activity you can raise money for may be House renovations, Water tanks, Clothes, Office equipment’s, Children’s resource center, Chapel for the children, Supplementary feeding etc. Please get to us through www.ceapu.com

  1. Donate Groceries/Eatables

5Provide nutritious meals to the poor and needy people. Donating groceries can help end the hunger of poor and needy people. They cannot even afford a single time meal for themselves and their family, so donating food will make their stomach fill and stay healthy. Rather than wasting food or throwing it, it is better to give it to a needy person. If you can, this would give a poor person a smile.

  1. Collection Drive

6By conducting collection drives for food, clothes, books, blankets and other necessities one can help the poor and needy people. These collection drives can be conducted in schools, offices, churches or locality and reaches to the neediest people. It is one of the easiest ways to help the poor and needy people. Contact the organizations who work for poor people to find out what they need and then organize collection drive by setting up containers at schools, or local premises in which people can drop off donations, ask offices to donate to the drive. CEAPU (Christian Efforts against Poverty Uganda Just visit http://www.ceapu.com) is one of the best and most appropriate organizations that you can contact for such a cause.

  1. Group Involvement/Volunteering Teams

7Volunteering time and skills can help the poor and needy people. Creating awareness among the people for helping the poor and needy people can get more and more individuals join the drive. Groups can be formed that can help the needy, buy them a meal, give them a ride to shelter and other necessary assistance. Volunteers can help and teach them. These volunteers can help in arranging free health camps, doctors can be invited to treat the poor and needy people. Even the smallest efforts count. By sparing just few days a week and doing even the smallest bit possible can do great wonders for the poor and needy people. Also, one can encourage friends or family members to join for just a noble cause. If you have a trip to Uganda, do not accept to go back home minus visiting us to see what we are doing for the children in need.

  1. Donate Old Belongings

8In order to help the poor and needy, one can donate the old stuff from old clothes to appliances etc. Through donating old stuff, donating does help the poor people and makes a difference to those who needs such stuff. Donating clothes especially in winter season when the weather is too cold is of great help to the poor and needy people under our care. Unneeded stuff can be donated to brighten someone else’s day at ceapu.

  1. Better Understanding

9Understand the needs and requirements of the poor and needy people. Help them overcome the adversities of life. One can help the poor and needy people by understanding their wants, desires and thoughts without diminishing their dignity and helping them achieve those wants in a respectable manner. Also, one should treat the poor and needy people with respect and understanding. This would make a huge difference in their lives. Give them the same respect and courtesy you would accord your friends and family members. Respond to them with a kind word and a smile and this will save them a great deal.

  1. Education

10This is the strongest that one can do for the needy “Educate one, you have educated the nation” Thumbs up Dan Yleana Newton for the many that you have sponsored” Imparting knowledge can help the poor and needy to stand on their feet. Education is the beginning of getting out from hardships of life. Giving education to the poor and needy people help them to grow as individuals and help them lead a better life. Education can help them to get a job, be employed build career and achieve success, capability of handling problems and lead a successful life. The poor and needy people can become independent, self-sufficient and better human being through the power of education. Through education, we can help the poor and needy people to develop their skills so that they can take over efforts to revitalize their life rather than always depending on the outsiders to do so for them. Thank you so much for sparing your time to read our post. For more info see www.ceapu.com or write to us ceapuganda@gmail.com. God Bless you.

HELP A CHILD TO SURVIVE.

20180320_182824As we engage in the attempt to decrease child deaths annually from 12 million, CEAPU (Christian efforts against poverty Uganda) has vowed to take the lead in this provided the resources can allow. We have decided to tackle all angles to allow a child meant to die a chance to life (Partner with us please) we are calling upon all those who are able to participate in this by sponsoring at least only one child. We are also making alarm to ‘Child Survival — Call to Action’ that needs a very quick response.

20180319_084713Due to the rise in childhood deaths and the failure of poor children to go to schools to learn better ways to live, CEAPU was born in 2015 to find a lasting solution to the community problems. Which we are indeed doing so well. Thanks to all our child sponsors for the work you are doing.

Recognizing that ministries of health in most developing countries lacked, enough resources and so need such projects programs to complement their work is so important, As Christian Efforts Against Poverty, We call upon other  non-governmental organizations to promote child survival. In this era of mobile phones, Facebook, Twitter, the internet and today’s social media, such social mobilization and groups we can change the situation at hand if we work together.

Initially, CEAPU faced opposition from many who accused us doubting the sustainability of our project but by God’s grace and our generous sponsors we are able to support the children under our care. We now have two students in secondary school. But eventually our critics are convinced that our vision for development, creating success stories with those supported with little resources and interventions, we are achieving our overall goal of combating poverty, and providing education and basic needs of life to the poor which will finally produce mature people who can support both themselves and their families.

We believe that with your partnership we can be able to go further. Just commit to sponsor only one child. It costs you only $39 a month. We thank you so much for your support. God bless you.

SPONSOR A CHILD/CEAPU

african boy seeking sponsorWhen you sponsor a child through Christian Efforts against Poverty Uganda, you are helping give an orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable child a family and a future. Children who have lost everything get a mother, brothers and sisters and everything they need to have a normal childhood. There are many in this category that are waiting for you.

As a child sponsor, your monthly gift of $39 goes to helping raise your sponsored child. That means you are providing food, clothing, parental care, housing, education and healthcare to a child in need.

CEAPU project provides love, care and support to 50 orphaned abandoned and vulnerable children in Kisoro district Uganda.

We believe that no child should grow up alone.

We hope you do too.

SPONSOR A CHILD IN UGANDA

SPONSOR A CHILD IN UGANDA.

For just $39 a month, you can provide a child in poverty with school fees and uniforms they need to go to school. What’s more, you can send them to a Bible based church each week. This unique combination gives children the opportunity to escape poverty and bring change to their families and communities for a life time. Choose to sponsor a child to day.

Our project commits to find the poorest children in their communities and register them into our programme, regardless of their faith or background because we are non-denominational. We then link each child with a sponsor who begins to make a difference in the life of the child through their letters, prayers and donations.

Your sponsored child will be given the care and resources they need to develop in every area of their lives – their mind, body and relationships, your donation will be used for

  • Fees, and uniforms to go to school
  • Nutritious food
  • Health check-ups
  • Personal attention and guidance from loving staff members
  • An age-appropriate Bible and biblical teaching
  • Literacy and life skills training
  • Encouragement from your letters

We share God’s love with the children we care for, but we don’t require any child to become a follower of Jesus be a part of our programme and receive the benefits. We are committed to working with the poorest of the poor so we help children from all backgrounds regardless of their religion.

CEAPUGANDA program is life changing and you don’t just have to take our word for it! According to us each child under our project should be able to study and finish school. They should also be able to enter salaried employment.

As soon as CEAPUGANDA has registered a child in need into our programme, we start looking for a sponsor to support them. Visit us at www.ceapu/the children and choose a child for yourself. Then you can send us a mail to let us know the child you have decided to sponsor.

Sponsor a child-CEAPUGANDA

SPONSOR A CHILD -CEAPUGANDA.

HAPPY CHILDRENEvery child deserves a strong start in order to end well (the best chance for a successful future). But too many children right here in the Uganda. And around the world are not getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. You can help change that. If you sponsor a child just one, then you will give them the gift of a better future.

When you sponsor a child, you get a special kind of giving that creates a relationship between you and the community where CEAPUGANDA operates to help to change the future of the children under our care. Sponsorship provides essential help and education to improve the well-being of children. It gives you the opportunity to witness young lives transformed for a better future. When you sponsor a child, two lives are changed: a child’s and yours! Your support helps in the following ways.

Early Childhood Care and Development prepares a child for a bright future by building a strong foundation for success in school. Unfortunately, about 30% of the world’s children fail to reach their developmental potential. And in Uganda fewer than 1 in 5 children have access to early childhood education. This explains why CEAPUganda is here

Basic Education is a right of all children. It’s estimated that 200 million children all over the world will quit elementary school without the basic reading and math skills they will need to thrive. By providing children with a basic education and a quality learning experience now, they will have the tools needed to succeed later in life. This cannot be possible minus your support.


img_0336 Health and Nutrition
 helps ensure that students aren’t too sick or hungry to learn. Worldwide, children lose 500 million school days each year due to illness caused by unsafe water and inadequate sanitation. School Health and Nutrition programs ensure access to proper sanitation and hand washing facilities and teach children the importance of good hygiene. When children regularly wash their hands, diarrhea – one of the most common deadly illnesses for young children in Uganda– is cut by one third. When healthy children can go to school – they can learn more and have greater opportunity to reach their full potential. Your support on this is very much appreciated.

 

 

Adolescent Development addresses the needs of teens so they can participate in their own success and the success of their community. Adolescent development programs help them build self-esteem and reduce vulnerability to exploitation, violence, substance abuse, child marriage and much more. Through these programs, teenagers learn life-skills, how to earn and save money and so much more.


Innovation
 sponsors across all programs. Sponsorship nurtures great ideas helping program staff develop interventions that best meet children’s needs. For example, Literacy Boost started as a program specific to child sponsorship.

Together we can restore hope for more children.
