Welcome  Message  from  the  Minister  of  Gender,  Labour  and  Social 
Affairs of the Republic of Uganda - Hon. Janat Balunzi Mukwaya  
 

Dear Delegates,  

I  warmly  welcome  you  to  Uganda  the  pearl  of  Africa  on  behalf  of  the  Government  of 
Uganda.  

As  we  gather  for  the  3rd  International  Federation  of  Social  Workers  Africa  region 
conference,  i  warmly  welcome  you  to  Common  Wealth Speke resort and conference center 
Munyonyo  and  the  country  at  large.  Our  conference  themed  “​Strengthening  Human 
Relations  for  Social,  Economic  &  Political  Transformation​”  comes  at  an  opportune  time  when  countries  across 
Africa  are  experiencing  social,  economic  and  political  challenges  that  threaten  the  wellbeing  of  people  of  Africa. 
Uganda  in  its  Vision  2040  strives  to  ensure  that  we  have  a  “​transformed  Uganda  society  from  a  peasant  to  a 
modern  and  prosperous  country​”.  This  conference  will  remind  us  of  our  shared  obligation  of  ensuring  that  all 
Ugandans,  especially  the  marginalized  and  most  vulnerable  members  of  our  society  have  access  to  quality  social 
services.  This  conference  will  further  enable  us  reflect  on  Uganda’s  commitment  and  contribution  towards 
attainment  of  the  sustainable  development  goals.  Our  deliberations  at  this  conference  and  the research evidence to 
be  shared  will  enable  most  of  the  delegates  to  engage  meaningfully  with  governments  to  include  social  work 
services and all other essential services in national development plans and national programmes.  

We  therefore  look  forward  to  a  very  productive  time  at  the  conference  and  we  hope  every  delegate  will  be 
empowered to play their rightful roles in the respective countries to make Social work a reality
