In comparison to the previous financial year, during this reporting year, 1st April 2011 to 31st March 2012, CPAR Uganda Ltd spent nearly twenty percent more money implementing our activities for the benefit of disadvantaged communities in northern Uganda.
We spent to the tune of Ushs. 1,881,287,171 (one billion, eight hundred eighty one million, two hundred eighty seven thousand, one hundred and seventy one shillings) for our operations, including implementing the following projects:
- Farmers First programme for the benefit of thousands of farming households in Alebtong and Dokolo districts of Lango Sub-Region
- Abim Food Security Project for the benefit of thousands of households at heightened vulnerability in Abim District of Karamoja sub-region.
- Food Security and Agricultural Livelihoods project for the benefit of thousands of farming households in war affected communities in Agago District of Acholi Sub-Region, under the framework of the Agriculture Livelihoods Recovery Programme (ALREP).
- Strengthening Recovery, Reconciliation, Peace-Building and Development project for the benefit of the communities of Agago, Pader, Nwoya and Lamwo districts of Acholi Sub-Region.
External grant funding to CPAR Uganda, totalling Ushs. 1,549,005,209 (one billion, five hundred forty nine million, five thousand, two hundred and nine shillings), was provided by our following funding partners:
- Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief
- Marie Stopes Uganda
- United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation
- United Nations Development Programme
In addition, CPAR Uganda was able to generate a total of Ushs. 129,077,391 (one hundred and twenty nine million, seventy seven thousand, three hundred and ninety one shillings) in other revenue; including from interest income, hire of vehicles and administrative recoveries.
Consequently, similar with the previous year, CPAR Uganda, did end the year with a huge annual deficit of Ushs. 203,204,571 (two hundred three million, two hundred four thousand, five hundred and seventy one shillings); which deficit was covered from our endowment funds.
The book value of CPAR Uganda’s Capital Fund (fixed assets – land, buildings, vehicles, office and other equipment) reduced significantly from Ushs. 635,916,500 (six hundred thirty five million, nine hundred sixteen thousand, five hundred shillings) to Ushs. 592,887,237 (five hundred nighty two million, eight hundred eighty seven thousand, two hundred and thirty seven shillings). The reduction was mostly due to the depreciation charge for the year.
CPAR Uganda holds a vision to see “Ugandan rural men, women and children lead healthy and dignified lives, during which their rights are respected and their basic needs are met.” During this reporting year, we were able to attract significant revenue and to implement our actions; overall, a good year.
