The research on “The impact of anti poverty initiatives on the people” was carried in Kapteret-sub County in Kapchorwa district. The research involved 60 respondents, of which 71% were men and descriptive and analytical research design was used. The research was however guided by research objectives. Objective one sought to examine the different kinds of antipoverty initiatives in place, to establish the impact of antipoverty initiatives on fighting poverty and to examine strategies that can effectively eradicate poverty. According to the findings, it was found out that Kapteret Sub County has antipoverty initiatives in place for example economic liberalization, technological development, free education systems, poverty allaviation fund [pafl , AND NAADS, these have been suitable for reducing poverty and have proved to be effective when adequately used. It was established that the strategies that have been put in place have had a major impact in the locals as poverty has greatly reduced for example the creation of employment opportunities, diversification of Agriculture, construction of good roads have helped to reduce the levels of poverty in the Sub county. The findings show that much as a lot has been done, much more needs to be put in place for poverty to be eradicated completely for example corruption and bureaucratic tendencies, have to Be eliminated, sensitization of the people about poverty and then monitoring of programs that have been put in place. When all the above is put in place poverty will be greatly reduced. Having carried out the research, I would recommend the Sub county to improve and put more emphasis on modern antipoverty initiatives and also make follow ups on the antipoverty programmers that are in place, this will help the Sub county to combat poverty. Furthermore the Subcounty should recruit qualified personnel and uncorrupt officials to help in implementing the antipoverty initiatives, community sensitization and encouraging more people to take their children to school, If all the above is followed poverty is most likely to reduce greatly.
