This organisation exists to rehabilitate and resettle young women brutalised by the LRA war and cattle rustlers in northern Uganda. As well as helping re-establish their livelihoods, we offer counselling support to rehabilitate them psychologically.CPOEI was established in 2005 when victims of violence in the LRA war were seeking refuge in the convent in Apac. Fifteen girls were resettled in two empty houses in the convent. Gradually their numbers increased and the sisters in the convent began to give them vocational training before sending them home to their families after a year in the refuge.Sewing machines for vocational training were donated by American well-wishers and, later, oxen were bought to teach the young women ploughing.Over time, more orphaned and widowed women came to th ...
