Meeting of the France Alumni Uganda network
The Ugandan alumni network had not been able to meet for several years due to the pandemic. On August 10th, an Alumni Evening was organised at the Residence of France to re-launch the network and offer a space for exchange and meeting to those who have stayed in France for their studies.
The evening was organised in two main parts:
- the screening of the documentary En scène: France Alumni Ouganda, directed by Mercy TWINOMUJUNI, in charge of the Campus France Uganda mission, followed by a time of exchange and questions
- A networking cocktail to allow alumni to share their experiences and enrich their network
The documentary En scène highlights the diversity of achievements of Ugandan alumni. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, it gives a large place to the intimate and shows that student stays in France are much more than a simple step in a university course. They allow you to get to know others, to enrich your vision of the world, to discover new cultures and new people. The discussion that followed the screening allowed for further reflection on topics related to alumni, including the establishment of scholarships.
The objective of the evening was also to strengthen the alumni network, with the ambition to offer regular opportunities to meet, including meetings with business leaders to benefit from professional opportunities for the pursuit of their career in Uganda. To keep informed of these meetings, alumni are encouraged to register on the platform France Alumni Uganda.
