The United Nations Association of Uganda (UNAU) programmes are guided by our core Objectives, Mission and Vision.

We work towards mobilizing all people of Uganda as well as regional and international partners to work towards the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).


UNAU through its network runs a livestock project to benefit vulnerable women and children. This is aimed at empowering beneficiaries to generate household income.


UNAU runs a School Service Programme through establishment of UN clubs in secondary schools. This is aimed at helping students comprehend and appreciate the complex interplay between International and National development issues.


UNAU promotes networking among higher institutions of learning by establishing chapters at Universities and Colleges. UNAU supports and encourages activities focusing on UN programmes and agenda


UNAU facilitates young people to acquire deeper knowledge about the UN through simulating and modeling different UN organs and debates.

The Uganda Model United Nations (UMUN) is a simulation of the United Nations General Assembly where young people between the ages of 18 -35 from different backgrounds in Uganda get an opportunity to practice diplomacy, leadership and ways that the United Nations (UN) operates.

UMUN focuses mostly on national, regional and global issues that rise concern to the youth.

Historically, UMUN has been organized and held since its launch in 2009 at Makerere University. Consecutively, every after a year the conference progressed on to Makerere University Business School (MUBS) in 2010, Nkumba University in 2011, Mbarara University of Science and Technology in 2013, Makerere University in 2014, Cavendish University in 2015 and and recently in Uganda Institute of Information and Technology (UICT) in 2016.


UNAU has an in-house resource centre that is open to members and visitors. We also disemminate development information materials to the public and the media. The materials are mainly provided by UN agencies and other development partners.

UNAU carries out leadership and skills development training for selected beneficiaries.
