The UCK is an essential connecting point for our immigrant community to ask questions, have documents translated, get help and advice on housing, living, working and studying in the Republic of Korea. Whether you are Ugandan by birth, marriage or association, we welcome you, and look forward to growing together as a community.
We help our members during emergency, come together in times of need, help families through legal issues, find work, improve their Korea speaking ability through our network, and connect our members to new opportunities. We give our members time to be heard and understood. We also provide volunteer opportunities that bring people together across cultures to build a more cohesive community.
The UCISK was founded in 2010 for the purpose of promoting goodwill, harmony, confidence and cooperation amongst Ugandans living and working in South Korea. The purpose of this organization is to promote brotherhood, celebrates diversity and togetherness. Our community is an inclusive home away from home for all Ugandans in South Korea and their families.
Today, the UCISK provides opportunities for professional development. We recognize the need to evolve and change as we strive to provide members with learning opportunities, development and business opportunities. Our Association meetings are held every end of the month in different places around Korea, but to keep up to date with the events and meetings, we encourage you to follow us on twitter, like our facebook page, join facebook group and also to join our whatssap chat room, and remember to participate in the meeting round tables, workshops, and presentations with guest expert speakers.
The UCK is a committed organization in providing a professional forum for our members to learn and share ideas and common concerns.
Our mission is to empower our members to thrive; creating opportunities for advancement and building bridges that unite and strengthen us all. We envision a cohesive and diverse community where all people are valued and empowered to participate and contribute to the health and prosperity.

If you have an issue, concern, problem, or happy thing to share - communicate and share it with our members. Discuss your issues, share your joys. We want to help you, and we want to celebrate with you. If you have a problem with a workmate, a member of UCISK addresses it. Don't let it fester.
UCISK is here to be supportive and to learn and grow together. Be an adult, and communicate with each other. Tell other you’re or they're doing a good job - work together, and talk to each other. Not only will this help the community grow, it will help your communication skills grow as well.
I want to thank the UCISK and friends for all the help accorded to me during my studies at Korea University Business School (KUBS). Many thanks to the Ministry of Education of Korea- NIIED for the Scholarship and financial support. I would keep the promises with NIIED as when I applied for the scholarship, being a valuable person and promoting mutual friendship between South Korea and Uganda.
We appreciate your honest review about UCISK activities.
