During a vision trip to rural western Uganda in 2014, CPI was introduced to God’s Mercy School in the small village of Bundimulombi, Uganda. There are currently 235 students attending the school, preschool through 12th grade. At that time, students were attending school all day without having lunch, and many students were coming to school without having had breakfast. In 2015, CPI launched a school lunch program in partnership with CPI co-worker Pastor Isaac Mugisa to provide students a lunch meal during the school day.
For $25/month, you can help feed 10 children for the entire month. Our goal is to provide lunches for 250 school children for every day of the school year. Additional funds raised in support of this program are applied toward other pressing humanitarian needs in Uganda through CPI’s ministries of compassion. These needs include food, restoration of homes, medicine and medical procedures in communities with limited access to critical resources.

Financial Assistance to Help Educate Ugandan Children
An estimated three quarters of the children in Uganda are educated in private schools, because parents feel their children receive virtually no education in government schools. Pastors also care for many abandoned children. CPI recently launched a financial assistance program to help with school fees. For $70 a month, you can send a child to private or Christian school in Uganda.
