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.
- Promoting and fostering unity among all Ugandans residing in South Korea without discrimination as well as acting as a support group for all our members.

- Fostering cooperation and understanding between the Ugandan and Korean governments.
- Encouraging all Ugandan to participate in and/or contribute to the task of nation building both in Uganda and South Korea.
