IHE Delft has 170 alumni in Uganda, the majority living in Kampala and cities nearby. Many of them are colleagues in different Institutions like the National Water & Sewerage Corporation, the International Resource centre, the National Environmental Management Authority and at Makerere University.
The evening started with the welcome words of Mr. Sonko Kiwanuka, alumnus 1995-96, and Ms. Maria Laura Sorrentino, alumni officer, which was followed by an introduction of all attendees. Dr. Tom Okurut, alumni award winner 2014 also addressed the public and show the group of alumni working at the National Environmental Management Authority. Alumni from different countries present in the refresher course get together with their class mates in Uganda, after many years.
It was a successful event where everybody has the opportunity to increase their connectivity and plan future actions to be in touch. It was highly evaluated for all alumni that were very grateful to have the opportunity to meet.
The evening ended with the launch of the official 'IHE Delft alumni group Uganda' on LinkedIn, to facilitate the communication among alumni of the country and the Alma matter. Alumni were also invited to update their contact details and keep them up to date to be always connected.
