Mission and Vision

CPAR works in partnership with vulnerable communities and diverse organizations to overcome poverty and build healthy communities in Africa.

CPAR envisions a world in which all individuals, families and communities are able to lead healthy and dignified lives where their rights are respected and their basic needs are met.

Commitment to Change

For over 30 years, CPAR has made a commitment to long-term change in rural East Africa. CPAR employs a community-centred development approach, working in partnership with African community members to develop initiatives that best address their needs, where they live. We work to improve the quality of their lives, and that of future generations.

Everything is Connected

Basic needs must be met to mobilize our commitment to change. To achieve this, we work with an understanding that everything is connected:

  • Without adequate forest cover, soils become depleted
  • Without fertile soil, food production declines, and the threat of hunger increases
  • Without secure food supplies and clean water, good health is impossible

We fulfill our commitment through programs that provide access to clean water and adequate food, improve hygiene and sanitation, create secure livelihoods and improve access to Primary Health Care.
