Our History

CPAR Uganda Ltd was founded in 2008, as a not-for-profit organisation that is incorporated in the Republic of Uganda as a company that is limited by guarantee and is without share capital; and is registered with the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), registration number 102332; CPAR Uganda used to be the Uganda country office and programme of CPAR. In the interest of sustainability, it was converted into an indigenous independent Ugandan organisation. The founders of CPAR Uganda decided to keep the acronym “CPAR”, however, within the context of CPAR Uganda, “CPAR” is not an acronym and is not defined word for word.

The maple leaf is a Canadian symbol, thus the maple leaf placed in a map of Uganda, as depicted in the CPAR Uganda Logo, connotes that CPAR was in Uganda and left an everlasting positive footprint. It also connotes that the work of CPAR lives on in the hearts of Ugandans and forms the foundation on which CPAR Uganda continues to build. CPAR Uganda’s logo connotes that we are associated with CPAR; but that CPAR Uganda is a distinct legal entity from CPAR; and therefore distinguishing ownership and accountability of CPAR Uganda from that of CPAR.
