Ugandan Diaspora

The Ugandan Diaspora comprises of all people of Ugandan origin living and/or working outside Uganda. It also includes Ugandans who may have lost their citizenship through acquisition of other citizenship. The Ugandans in the Diaspora are estimated to be 1.5 million according to the UN Human Development Report 2009. The majority of Ugandans emigrated in the early 1970s, during the political turmoil that beset the country following the assumption of political power by the Idi Amin military regime. This group of Ugandan emigrants of the 1970s includes those of Asian origin that were hastily expelled in 1972. Over the years, other Ugandans have emigrated mainly in search for better social and economic opportunities. We believe that our Diaspora are actively or potentially enthused with various aspects of the country they left. This can be exemplified by their participation in National celebrations, cultural galas, and annual get together among other explicit ways. Many of the Ugandan Diaspora possess impressive knowledge, skills, talents and financial resources that have already contributed significantly to the development of their host countries and Uganda as their ancestral land. Some of the Diaspora are still looking for opportunities to contribute towards developing Uganda.
