About Ugandans Abroad

Ugandans Abroad is a news website covering the international Ugandan community and our friends.  We launched in 2010, and our focus is the diaspora– culture, health, business, immigration, women and more, but we also cover issues dear to us back home- from politics to real estate, investment to travel, human rights to literature.  We are based in Times Square, New York, but have correspondents in Massachusetts, the U.K., and Uganda.  We update our website with fresh news on a daily basis, but also have an electronic newsletter we send out to our community.

Get involved. Have a story tip and/or idea? Want to do more business with the diaspora, our audience? Please e-mail us at ugandansabroad@gmail.com.  We’d love to hear from you!

p.s. We are the pilot project of AfricaConnections, a company that provides information and other services to the African diaspora all over the world.
