National day celebration
The association arranged a very successful national day celabration on 9 October 2001 at Safari Club in Oslo. Among the guests were the Ugandan Ambassador to Scandinavia, Mr. Omar Migadde Lubulwa, and a prominent member of the family of the Kabaka in Buganda. Guests from NOFU were also present. All those attending were impressed with the function.
To work for cultural exhange activities between Norway and Uganda is a goal for of the organisation. There is a great potential for learning more about each others traditions and arts, and the Uganda Community in Norway hope to contribute to this by e.g. arranging visits to Norway by Ugandan artists. The Uganda Community can also try to arrange for lectures or entertainment on request.
