ABOUT THE FAMILY CONFERENCE

Pursuant to the declaration of 2017 as the Year of the Family in Uganda by the President of Uganda and the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, with the latter extending the year of family to 2018; Uganda Christian University (UCU) in collaboration with the AfriChild Centre have organized a Family Conference. Conversely the Family conference strategically celebrates the International Day of Families also commemorated in the same month of May. The 2018 UN theme for the International Day of Families is: “Families and Inclusive Societies”.

The two day conference is scheduled to take place on 21 and 22 May 2018. It provides a forum to dialogue on the deconstruction of traditional treasured norms and values regarding the family in the present age and yet the Church and her institutions seek desperately to uphold the latter given the time-tested results of such values in helping to develop nations. The fundamental question that the conference seeks to respond to is ‘What is the future of the family as the foundational unit of life in Africa today?
