Northern Uganda is a beautiful, peaceful place. It is home to some of the warmest, most hospitable people one will ever meet. But the people of Northern Uganda don't have access to many of the most basic human needs like being able to educate their children, having access to decent healthcare, and being able to afford clean water. The vast majority of Northern Ugandans live on $2 or less per day.

That's where CAFECC (Christian Action for Empowering Church and Community) comes in. CAFECC is a Ugandan Christian microfinance institution addressing the needs of Ugandan people. It has a Ugandan board with Ugandan management and staff. It extended an invitation to PEER Servants to partner with it in 2005, and the organizations have been working together to extend the kingdom of heaven to Northern Uganda ever since. Thousands have already received loans and basic business training to start or grow small businesses, but tens of thousands remain to be served.

Please click on "Fundraise" to the right and join Team Uganda to raise $5,000+ to create opportunities for the people of Northern Uganda. 100% of what we raise will go to CAFECC. You can walk right where you are when convenient with you, or join others on Team Uganda at the following Walks:

  • Charleston, SC - April 20, 9:30 am
  • Boston (Wakefield), MA - June 1, 10:00 am
  • Newburyport, MA - December 14, Noon

If you have donors who prefer to give offline, ask them to make checks out to "PEER Servants" and give/mail them to you. Then just bring them to the Walk or mail them to PEER Servants at PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801. Please include a slip noting your name and the team you are on. You can also add the offline donations to your fundraising page to show the progress in meeting your fundraising goal.

May God bless you richly and multiply many times over what we can raise together to bless the people of Northern Uganda.
