After 30 years of existence UNAA requires major transformation to adapt to the Uganda Diaspora of this generation. As president I’m committed to the mission of increasing UNAA’s presence and impact on the lives of our community members all year round.
This new agenda will mobilize and reach all 60,000 Ugandans in North America by offering them a platform to showcase their skills, share their resources and opportunities with our community. There is massive potential in the Ugandan Diaspora community to achieve the extraordinary and that journey begins today.
