About the Convention
The Uganda Convention UK’s vision is to harness the tremendous skills, expertise and knowledge base of the Ugandan Diaspora with a view to promote socio-economic and infrastructural development in Uganda. The Uganda Convention provides a platform for exchanges of ideas and networking to Ugandan Diasporas on matters of common interest and concern to them. It also aims to help the Government of Uganda to better understand and appreciate the expectations of the Ugandan Diaspora community from the land of their ancestors and more importantly, acknowledge the important role played by them in Uganda’s efforts to acquire its rightful place in the community of nations.
