The Uganda Diaspora Network is a forum aimed at bringing together Ugandans who live and work abroad by celebrating their contributions overseas and also encouraging them to give of their time, talents, ideas and expertise whilst inspiring the next generation of Ugandan leaders.

Please send us those inspirational stories and philanthropic work involving Ugandans abroad. We shall share these stories using this platform that is rapidly growing and expanding. The Next Diaspora Social Networking Gala will be Held on 30th December 2012 at The Kampala Serena Hotel.
OK why can’t they keep a consistent nomenclature?
Ugandan-American should mean a Ugandan person who came to America.
American-Ugandan should mean an American person who went to Uganda.
That’s how it should be. I typed in American-Ugandan in order to find information on people in America who have moved to Uganda. But literally every site is about Ugandan-Americans.
