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.

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.

 

God has blessed us to bless others

IMG_5131Dear friends receive christian greetings from Christian Efforts Against Poverty Uganda in Jesus name.We thank the Lord so much for how far He has brought us and we are sure that God will continue taking care of us, our beneficiaries and more especially also our sponsors in every step that we shall make in modelling our children into the kind of people God wants then to be in future.

God has been faithful, is faithful and will forever be. We are very glad to have such a program that is helping those in need, I am aware we cannot be able to take in everyone but I am sure transforming these will help alot. Iam also happy to let you know that we are enjoying our partnership with you. As our mission is restoring hope for the needy by giving them the basic needs of life. We have for sure done the best that we can afford

Education wise, we have 23 children who are registered CEAPU beneficiaries. Of these, 12 are sponsored. This means that the remaining 11 children are still seeking sponsors. The good news is that since our focus is mainly on evangelizing with these children and taking them to school, they have all been put into school using the funds from the donors that we so far have. And they are progressing well.

The data above shows us that we have a total of 23 children

Of the 23, 12 have gotten sponsors. We thank God for that.

Of the 23, 8 are males and 15 are females.

Spiritually, every time we have the children meet, we always have them memorize a verse, sing some christian songs, teach them new songs, and tell them every thing is because of the love of God.We are teaching them and discipling them to ensure that when they grow to the confession age, they should be able to confess Christ as their Lord and savior. Also we hope that every child who reaches a time when he/she is able to read the Bible, we shall be able to make available to them with Bibles. We, so far, have three.

Physically, we teach our children health, have them do exercises, play games in groups, teach them sanitation and its importance in their homes, and above all we try as much as possible to provide medical treatment to our children.

Socially, we teach these children the importance of having friends. Those of them who have sponsors are already aware that their sponsors are their friends and some of them also have friends among themselves.This means that when they grow up, they will be able to live with others in a healthy manner.

Achievements

IMG_5159All the 23 beneficiaries have had their school fees paid since the time of their registration and we hope to continue paying for them because of the commitment our donors have in supporting our ministry.

One of the parents who had left his home and gone to Kampala for a long time because he was unable to provide for the family… when he heard that a sponsor had come on board to support his family, he came back home. We Praise the Lord for that.

Two of our beneficiaries, Faith and Devota, were sick but received treatment and now they are well and attending school.

All of the children have always received basic needs and scholastic materials as need arises. Thumbs up to our donors.

Thanks

We first of all want to thank God so much for enabling this project to come up. We also thank Yleana Newton and Dan for sponsoring Munyantwari Alex who pioneered this program.

We also want to thank our sponsors so much because if it was not for them this program would still just be an idea. Now we see its implementation.

We thank our friends and those of you who have always prayed for us.

We thank our staff for their commitment to serve both God and these children.

We also thank the Government of Uganda for accrediting CEAPU and allowing us to operate legally in the country.

 

Three of our beneficiaries Devota, Racheal,and Joan received Christmas gifts last year. They bought clothes and food for their families and they all were very happy.

Prayer requests

IMG_5194Pray that we all shall be encouraged in the Lord to carry on this ministry to the young children.

Pray also for the children without sponsors where as we may pay their fees, give them some basic needs. It still lowers their self-esteem to be in the program without being sponsored.

Pray that there shall be security in the country so that we carry out our operations in a secure environment.

Pray for us also for God to open a way so that we shall have offices that are permanent where people can feel secure to visit us.

Pray for one of our missionary families who are here in Uganda to work with us, that God will provide for them their needs of life and also good health.

Pray for one of our sponsors who will also be visiting the family she is supporting this year.

Pray that God blesses our sponsors with enough resources, money and good health so that they are able to keep supporting their children.

 

Finally pray for all these young children that they will come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior.

You may not have time to pray for all these but at least have time to pray for one of these, that their desired future will bring glory to God.

We love and pray for you.

THE CHALLENGE!!!

African baby in dirtYesterday is gone, today has come, and tomorrow is on its way but yesterday is remarkable day in the live of our beneficiaries and us as a project in general.We thank our dear sponsors and those praying for us out there. It was a very big blessing for us to see Adam Purvis come around to help to the distribution of soap and Vaseline to all the children after his preaching to our children and their children.

1 John 4:7-14 in his speech,he challenged the caregivers that we ought to love one another because God is the author of love,he further stressed it out very well that love must originate from their families and that weather they have food, clothes, school tuition, books etc it does not matter if their parents do not tell them that they love  them and then actually do to them the acts of love.

So will you please have a child to whom you will show Gods love by telling them you love them,praying for them, sponsoring their education, sending them a letter or helping supply their school needs. Remember your decision on this matter could bring a life lasting change in the life of a child in Uganda.

Partner with us therefore in praying for the Purvis family who have been here for the last six months helping to see that the implementation of CEAPU is a success and our dear friend John Kinton as they go back to USA on Monday 27/July/2015. We hope they reach safely and we hope they will come back again

We love and are waiting for you to act.

A Sponsor

And so you ask,who is a sponsor? To us as a project, staff and sponsored children a sponsor is the important person in the life of the child for the child is taught how to love through all our programs. Child sponsorship allows an individual, typically in a developed country, to sponsor, or fund a child in a developing country until the child becomes self-sufficient. This could mean financially supporting the education, health, spiritual and security needs  of the sponsored child. Your sponsorship ensures your sponsored child receives support through every phase of his or her young life. It provides health care, nutritional support to help your child stay healthy,and caters for the child’s spiritual needs. Your sponsored child will also receive basic necessities like school shoes and clothing, school uniforms, tuition and other school supplies so that poverty doesn’t stand in the way of his or her education. When your sponsored child reaches age 14, he or she will have access to a world-class Youth Program full of activities designed to transform youth into confident and responsible young christian adults prepared for success. Skills training being so important in the lives of these children we shall have as many skills as possible to ensure every child fits in the system. Will you sponsor a child with CEAPU?

SPONSORSHIP

Child Development through sponsorship is our main program.The funds that we receive are used for spiritual, cognitive, social and economic development of the children living in poverty so that they can know that someone somewhere loves them and then learn to appreciate God for such love and grow up to love others in the future. So we link children in need with a sponsors who are able and willing to support the children. A sponsor gives to the child/children registered with CEAPU as though giving to the Lord. It is the Lord who pays back to the sponsor. Our sponsored children have a duty to pray and write to the sponsors.

“For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more….” Luke 6:38

Our prayer is that you too will be willing to help a child in need here in Uganda by sponsoring a child, by donating to the project, sending a message of encouragement, writing a letter to the children and by praying for our ministry. If you do not know how to do this, just visit us at www.ceapu.com/the-children. There are many children waiting for your help.
