History

Our story starts way back in 1981

The origin of Caritas dates far back in the Bible times as recorded in Acts 6: 2-3. In the early times of Christianity, aid distribution was assigned to a special team of people. Subsequently, as society progressed, different countries started Caritas offices. In 1897, a national Caritas was founded in Germany and was followed by Switzerland in 1901. In 1950, Pope Paul convoked all the Catholic organizations involved in charitable and social works to address the worsening post World War II problems. This marked the birth of the international confederation of Catholic charities which later became Caritas International in 1957. In 1999, the Uganda Episcopal Conference adopted the name Caritas to represent its Social Services and Development (SSD) Departments.

 

Caritas Moroto was created in 1981 as the socio-economic and humanitarian services development arm of Moroto Catholic DioceseIt currently operates in the districts of Moroto, Amudat, Nakapiriprit, Napak and Nabilatuk. It initially offered services as a relief agency to avert catastrophes during times of calamities and food shortages. Later, it appropriated the oversight role for all Diocesan development programs and projects. It implemented key agricultural schemes in four wetter areas of former greater Karamoja sub-region. The first needs assessment conducted in 1992 and 1993, profiled four priority areas for intervention namely: peace, agriculture, education and water.
