President's Message


-- A Million Welcomes!

The mission of the Ugandan Community in Greater Chicago is to nurture and strengthen the Ugandan culture and heritage through programs emphasizing Ugandan music, literature, drama, traditional dancing and constructive contributions to enable more balance, harmony and excellence in life.
A sneak view of our vision is challenging and we believe we shall get there. We have plans of a Ugandan American Heritage Center to provide the best of Ugandan culture through arts, history, education, dance and social outlets. We welcome all the ideas and support we can get.
Last but not least, Thank you to our many passionate volunteers, our Executive, and our dedicated Board of Directors that help our mission as a non-profit organization, enhancing the quality of life of our members and those in the community. Please click here to help us reach our goals.
Thank you and Happy 2017 :) (Monica K. Tindimubona- UCIGC President)
