Engaging Local Governments for National Transformation in Uganda

TOPICS IN THIS STORY

AfricaGovernment

Last week, 117 political leaders gathered in Ntungamo, Uganda for a mini Global Leadership Summit event called “Engaging Local Governments for National Transformation”. The dream for this smaller, politically focused event and others like it, is to begin empowering political and technical district leaders with tools to improve stewardship, work ethics, integrity, patriotism, and servanthood in Uganda. These influential leaders gathered to learn from speakers like Condoleezza Rice, Carly Fiorina, and Allen Kagina.

Each session provoked discussion on improving and changing the story for Uganda — Leaders were challenged to focus on leading the younger generation into harmony, despite varied political opinions. They were inspired by the fellowship and progress that could take place in peer learning and accountability forums. Leaders were also drawn to fresh ways to look at embracing change to transform Uganda for the better.

Continue to pray for the impact that the Summit is having on leaders in Uganda throughout the year. Leaders in Uganda see the Summit as more than an event, but a leverage for change.
