http://www.strive4impact.com/callingadvice_files/international-calling-cards-advice-uganda.html The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. The UK placed the territory under a charter of the Imperial British East Africa Company in 1888, and much of it become a British protectorate in 1894. Several adjoining areas were subsequently added, the country reaching its current extent in 1914 when it became the Protectorate of Uganda. Independence was granted in 1962. In 1963, the country adopted a constitution similar to that of an elected monarchy. However, in 1967 it adopted a republican constitution and became the Republic of Uganda.

 

THE JEWISH COMMUNITY

There is a very stable community of about 500 Abayudaya Jews in Uganda, the legacy of a local king who about 100 years ago decided to embrace Judaism instead of Christianity during the British colonialization efforts. Something to look into, these folks are more "forgotten" than the Jews of Ethiopia (though they really aren't as persecuted). Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
