East Africa Times Launches September 1st

Our dedicated team has decided to expand Ugandans Abroad to cover the East African diaspora, and is launching a new website called The East Africa Times to cover East African immigrant communities around the world.

We are part of many diverse communities abroad, but always connected to East Africa.

The new site will launch on September 1st, and www.ugandansabroad.org will be rerouted to www.eastafricatimes.org.  Older content will still be able to be accessed at our new home.

East Africa Times will focus on telling diaspora stories, and reporting on business and immigration issues.  We will offer life and style coverage (world literature and music, book reviews, fashion, cross-cultural relationships), education reporting, stories on religious diaspora communities, health reporting, coverage of gender issues, and reporting on the White House, U.S. state department, other international agencies, and much more.  We will offer a metro section representing our base in New York City, but cover diaspora stories all over the world.

We are eagerly recruiting writers, photographers, and are eager to hear your story ideas and tips.  Most of all, we want to hear your story!  We’d also love to come to your events.  Please shoot us an e-mail at eastafricantimes@gmail.com.

Ugandans Abroad started as a pilot project of the Ugandan diaspora community and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in 2009.   We are grateful to the Ugandan and East African community, as well as their friends, for their support since our inception.  Thank you so much.
