For 16 years now, AIESEC in Uganda has dedicated itself towards the development of individuals with an overriding commitment of providing an integrated learning experience which comprises providing to its members Leadership opportunities, Participating in a Global Learning Environment and International Internship. 2008/2009 saw the expansion of AIESEC in Uganda from the traditional 2 universities to 4 new universities. Bringing the total of AIESEC presence in the Universities to 6. In July 2009, as the National Team of AIESEC in Uganda, we were posed by yet another challenge, a challenge to ensure that all the Local Committees had proper structures to support operations and sustainable growth, a challenge to ensure that the finances of the organization were growing steadily with proper governance and challenge of ensuring that Every day, Every Member was going through a life changing experience, an experience that they would live to cherish and treasure. Driving growth through university chapters (LCs) The strategy was driving growth through all the 6 Local Committees, to ensure that the National Team was not doing all the operational work, but purely dealing with strategic issues and also to ensure that there was proper Knowledge Management and that every Member was empowered and owned up vision of the Local Committees, in order to ensure growth. Governance and Accountability This involved introducing the New Financial model which was legislated at the National Planning Conference, forming a Board Of Advisors structure for the university chapters and the national team to follow, Formulating a Coaching structure that enable the university chapters to be able to report to the national team and as well for the national team to let the university chapters know what we were doing. This also entailed sorting all the legality issues – ensuring that AIESEC was recognized by every University Administration that AIESEC is present in. This also meant that the AIESEC in Uganda as the National Body be legally registered to the office of Registrar of Companies.
AmpliFIRE The name of the National Team was Amplifire, what this meant was every success that ever was or has ever existed in AIESEC in Uganda; this was the time to amplify and to magnify them. It was time to show the world what AIESEC in Uganda was all about, it was time to prove to ourselves that we can….!!!!! Coming to the end of our term, I can say that we have achieved tremendously, above and beyond what all our predecessors had ever achieved. This year we have honored those how came before us and made them proud about AIESEC in Uganda. And inspired the future as well Being the Top most performing Country in Africa for 3 months consecutively, realizing 150 exchanges in just 6 months. With all these, I really want to thank the National Team for AIESEC in Uganda 09/10 for sticking together even when it was tough – that the time you get to know what strong men are made of. The Local Chapter Presidents from all the 6 university for really supporting the National Team and ensuring that there Directors and Members Understood what AIESEC was all about and hence became committed and delivered results. Lastly to all the BOAs from the National to the Local BOA Team, for keeping AIESEC in Uganda in Check and offering unlimited time and advice. And as you read this publication, I hope you are going to enjoy it and mostly be inspired to take an active role in AIESEC, as a Partner, as a Member, as an alumnus, as a BOA and everyone else.

Exchange Report by: Irene Nalubega, Member Committee Vice President Exchange, AmpliFIRE 09/10, AIESEC in Uganda.
Uganda tops Africa!
The AIESEC global exchange program is one of AIESECâ€™s core product and work. For any student and graduate, going for exchange is one of the most impactful experiences in their lives as they get exposure to different cultures and ways of living. This program is suitable for students in all areas of study such as engineering, commerce, arts, and education. This year, 2009/2010, AIESEC in Uganda has involved more than 90 companies and organizations, as well as over 30 students and graduates in this program. NGOs, energy companies, insurance companies and banks have participated most in our exchange program this year. AIESEC provides a pool of candidates to companies and organizations from our online database, from which the company chooses the best candidate. We also provide integration of the intern into the country, visa and work permit requirements, and thorough servicing to both the intern and the company/organization. AIESEC Uganda this year has tremendously grown as regards to achieving and contributing to the worldwide AIESEC exchange growth goals and results; as shown in the illustrations below. All these results are achieved through the AIESEC chapters/ universities in Uganda. In the outgoing exchange pool, Ugandan students and graduates have been able to get opportunities to countries such as; Tanzania, Kenya, Germany, Nigeria, Ghana, India, Costa Rica, among others. We have been able to advertise our opportunities to students through direct approach, mega-recruitment drives, events and use of online platforms.

AIESEC Uganda’s growth over four years. The general growth trend of AIESEC in Uganda is increasing as both the company/ organisation, and student market increases. The analysis is illustraded below:
Who is Fred Kyaka?
You could say am a passionate young family man, Married and a father to two lovely kids. I am interested in youth leadership. Currently I am the key accounts manager for Coca-Cola bottling company and at the same time I am the director staff trainer success Africa. Education wise, I am a forester by training and practice (note). I did my undergraduate at Makerere University at the Faculty of Forestry.
FRED AND AIESEC XP I could say that this was a period of fantastic growth. I joined AIESEC when I was already on the path of politics but my brother, Kenneth kamulegeya who was already in AIESEC encouraged me to join the organization. I was MCP twice but the first time it was more of circumstances that forced me then the second time around I was better prepared. I learnt a lot in AIESEC, crossed boundaries ,did all that could be done.
Why did you not go for exchange? For me I guess I felt the conferences I attended in different countries, dealing with trainees, working with different people from different countries and cultures was equivalent to having an exchange experience.
Do the dots connect? Definitely. The kind of pressure AIESEC puts you under i.e.
doing audited reports, annual reports. The numerous skills that your exposed to just by engaging in AIESEC activities equip you with a lot of skills, that eventually you get to use when you are out of AIESEC. Also the way I got my first job was also interesting, I got hired by Hima cement which was a national partner then before the managing director had a look at my CV, then he eventually did, he found out that I was a forester by training and the job was for commercial manger!!
Book your exhibition space now!
Is AIESEC still relevant? I could say YES. From a student point of view an active AIESECer stands miles ahead from the average student. From the employer point of view AIESEC is evidently a good source of high potential talent.

Eva joined AIESEC in August 2008, when her LC was just being established, and she was immediately elected as LC-VP-Projects. Eva developed the curriculum for Developing Leaders Day, the major AIESEC event in her LC. Soon after, Eva attended AfroXLDS in Uganda, which introduced her to the whole AIESEC way. Eva began taking great joy in all of the AIESEC work that she was doing. She began heading member meetings at the request of the LCP and mentoring individual students in the AIESEC way. Inspired to achieve excellence in her project, Eva developed a new concept for the ASK Project. Eva was one of two active members at her LC during the summer. She single-handedly managed all four trainees and realized the project, which impacted over 75 students. Through all that Eva has achieved, she has become even more ambitious to create more change within AIESEC and the broader community.

External Relations The AIESEC Experience is the best personal and professional development experience currently available to university students worldwide. AIESEC people “graduating” from this experience represent the best graduate talent available in the market. This makes AIESEC’s Global Exchange Program the most direct link to tomorrow’s business leaders. In addition to this our unique leadership and community development programs make us the top choice among young people and organizations for activating leadership for a positive impact in the society. Through the External Relations (ER) portfolio, we strive to establish fruitful and value-based relationships with our partners to deliver our promises. 2009/2010 has witnessed a huge progress in the External Relations portfolio for AIESEC in Uganda especially in the field of sales and marketing, events management and external positioning. We have been able to get in touch with more than 50 organizations, raise new partnerships, and realize two major events in Career Fair in addition to receiving more than 20 media mentions. External Relations has been the greatest contributor to the total finances of the organization with company sponsorships making up 34% of the total budget.
International Congress 2009
The International Congress, the largest annual AIESEC leadership conference, is a global platform for young people to discuss world issues such as Trade, ICT, HIV/ AIDS, Poverty, and Entrepreneurship and to engage in leadership skills training. A vigorous sales and marketing campaign for International Congress (IC) 2009 realized two financial sponsors in Libra Energy and Africa Power Initiative which enabled a delegation of 8 AIESEC in Uganda members (the biggest Ugandan delegation to ever attend an International Congress) to attend the international conference in Malaysia between 22nd – 31st August 2009. Uganda Tourism Board provided in kind support in form of promo materials (CDs and magazines) about Uganda that were issued to other country delegations during the conference.
Career Fair 2010
AIESEC in Uganda successfully concluded its first Career Fair from 13th – 16th April 2010. The AIESEC Career Fair was aimed at enabling students already at an early stage to sort out their study focus according to the practical world through interacting with top employers from various industries in Uganda. For the sponsors and exhibitors, this was a chance to not only recruit or get to know potential employees, but also to build up and foster their image amongst future managers on a long term. 14 companies participated in the AIESEC Career Fair 2010 as exhibitors. Among these, Standard Chartered Bank was the Gold Sponsor while Madvani Group was the Silver Sponsor. Over the 4 days, we received approximately 2000 attendees from six universities namely Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Uganda Christian University, Kampala International

University, Makerere University Business School and Ndejje University. Career Fair Magazine was one of the key products of AIESEC Career Fair 2010. The Attendees had a lot to learn from the articles included such as “Pimp my CV” among others while the exhibitors/ advertisers were particularly impressed with the quality of the compilation and design. Another unique element of AIESEC Career Fair 2010 was the professional development workshops and indoor career presentations. We had a total of 10 workshops covering diverse topics like work abroad opportunities, employer expectations, management and industrial training among others. The Panel discussion involving four successful corporate representatives chaired by Ethan Musolini (CEO, Success Africa) was the main highlight.
Annual Stakeholders’ Dinner 2010
In addition to communicating our impact for the year 2009/2010, the Annual Stakeholders’ Dinner was designed so that our members can meet face to face with our partners and board of advisors. It is also the perfect time to introduce the new leadership of AIESEC in Uganda to all stakeholders. This year the AIESEC annual Stakeholders’ Dinner will also showcase the Graduate Employer of Choice Awards for rewarding the most popular employer among university students.
Organizations support various functional areas of our work and choose specific activities/events to be engaged in. AIESEC works with organizations to bring solutions to the following issues: Diversity, Sustainability, Leadership development, Employer brand, talent mobility and shortage in certain regions and insight in youth opinion. SCB has been our biggest partner this year followed by API and as such the two have been invited to become National Partners of AIESEC in Uganda for the next three years. Other companies involved in the Global Internship Program include UAP, Kenlloyds Logistics and AON.

From Nov. 2009 until May 2010 I did an MT in Uganda at UAP Insurance. I had an amazing time, both socially and professionally. I grew as a person because I experienced how it is to work in a corporate environment b particularly in a developing country. I also learned internship from the work I did v for AIESEC in Uganda, but maybe even more importantly, I met so many amazing people, who hopefully will be friends for life.
The experience I had has really changed my life.
Lisette Swart, The Netherlands and Uganda
AIESEC in Uganda is present in six Universities, namely Kyambogo, MUBS, MUK, KIU, UCU, and Ndejje (Kampala campus).Please contact any member from these Universities to access your global internship opportunity as long as you are a University student/ a recent graduate from any University in Uganda.
Talent Management Report by: Eunice Wanjira, Member Committee Vice President Talent Management, AmpliFIRE 09/10, AIESEC in Uganda.
The term 2009/2010 was what I could say would be the defining moment for AIESEC Uganda because from having only two entities/local chapters i.e. Makerere business school and Makerere University from the previous term then came four additional entities Ndejje university, Kyambogo University, Kampala International University and Uganda Christian University. The term has been one of strategic change in the area of Talent Management. We have implemented this at the local level through the launch of the MATRIX FORMULA. This formula aided LC’s in recruiting, inducting and talent allocation for each member. The creation and implementation of the matrix meant that members took on a defined role within the Local Committee, and we have actively encouraged and empowered the Local Committees to track the work members are doing, and the contribution they make to their Local Committee.
OUR MEMBERS. Statistically AIESEC Uganda has 255 members all registered on my AIESEC.NET. The numbers of active members are approximately 130 members; therefore there are about 125 non active members. The membership of our students is significantly diverse given all entities have a number of east Africans as part of their student body. In addition to Ugandans there are Rwandese, Sudanese, Kenyans, and Tanzanians .
There is no particular inclining to a certain degree/ bachelors in our membership. Members come from diverse background i.e. science, engineering, technical, mathematics, business studies, social sciences and arts. This year gender has also shown a significant improvement or balance. Out of the six universities we have had 2 Local chapter female presidents’ Prima Babirye and Catherine Wahome. Also there is a significant improvement on the number of females taking up leadership roles.
LEADERSHIP AND DEVELOPMENT. The average number of a local executive board is 7. This year has also seen a lot of leadership positions created within the local chapter, on average the minimum number of leadership position created by each Local Chapter being 15. The leadership positions have come from project teams, Portfolio teams and events teams. This year we have led a more proactive membership who are proud to be a part of AIESEC and who believe in the possibility of achieving exceptional results. This shift in attitude is evident in the results being delivered, for example, both Kyambogo, Ndejje and UCU have been able to increase the number of Outgoing exchange while Makerere University have single handedly raised and realized the 5 Managerial traineeship to be done at the local level.
CONFERENCES. AIESEC Uganda has three conferences in a year. NIS ( Newees Induction Seminar), NLDS (National Leadership development seminar) and Planning Conference. AIESEC Uganda members also attended other two regional conferences making in total 6 the number of conferences members have attended.
We have focused on providing high-level, high quality training to our membership to increase their understanding of the organization, challenge them and those running the conference, and enhance their enjoyment of the conference, empowering them to return to their LCs and deliver. We have also focused on alumni integration in the conferences. The alumni integration was very vital for our members’ motivation and also for them to learn our history. All the conferences were chaired by former Presidents and some facilitated by other alumni. This year has also seen the re- launch of the membership excellence award which rewards the best Local chapter of the term.
PROJECTS In AIESEC Uganda’s quest to develop globally minded and socially responsible young leaders, Projects are the fundamental unit where our international platform takes shape. Each Project must fulfill the following criteria: 1. Based on Exchange – the Project creates opportunities for international youth to come to Uganda for rewarding internship experiences and encourages Ugandan students to go out for similar international exchange experiences.
2. Financial Sustainability – the Project has a revenue generating strategy and manages its expenditures through a detailed budget, in order to leave reserves for future growth. 3. Activating Leadership – the Project creates several leadership experiences for Ugandan students who are designing and implementing the Project. 4. Positive Impact on Society – the Project addresses a critical issue in Ugandan society and creates positive impact by training and empowering a clearly defined target audience.

Performance measurement: Financial Sustainability AIESEC in Uganda was awarded two major grants to carry out Projects during 2009-2010. These were the Standard Chartered Bank - Living with HIV Grant to deliver the ASK Project and the Proctor & Gamble Alumni Network Grant to deliver the swITch Project. These grants totaled more than 5,000 USD in financial support, to enable AIESEC Ugandaâ€™s projects to run sustainably.
Performance measurement: Activating Leaders The role of managing projects in the AIESEC Local Committees has created over 60 leadership experiences for Ugandan students. These leaders have grown their professional network, gained practical experience, and adopted value-based leadership. These experiences are of immense value as these Ugandan students become agents of positive change through their professional career.
AIESEC in Uganda is training over 100 university students in entrepreneurship and skills of creating a business plan, with a mission of converting the youth from job-seekers to job-creators. AIESEC in Uganda also expanded into the issue of MicroFinance through the entrepreneurship project to target the least wealthy communities as a base of empowering entrepreneurial ideas. Finally, AIESEC in Uganda has pioneered two projects on new issues this year. The Appreciating Life Through Art (ALTA) Project is teaching a curriculum of diverse art forms to develop cross cultural understanding, self-confidence, and peace among disadvantaged youth. The Mind Your Language (MYL) Project is equipping the youth with language and cultural skills to make them more successful in international business opportunities in Uganda. Both of these new projects will be comprehensively evaluated when they conclude in August 2010 and revised to achieve greater impact in the coming term.
Performance measurement: Positive Impact on Society During this term, AIESEC in Uganda is training 5,000 individuals in Answers Solutions & Knowledge (ASK) on HIV and AIDS, so that these individuals can go on to be peer-educators around this issue. The primary target audience is secondary school students, while we are also targeting some university students and the community at large. AIESEC in Uganda has also trained 550 individuals in computer and information technology skills, so as to improve their job readiness, productivity, and quality of life. This Project primarily took place AIESEC trainee with school children in an outskirt of Kampala, where she is teaching and volunteering for the ASK Project
Communication & Information Management In June 2009, AIESEC in Uganda introduced a new portfolio on its National team to ensure that, AIESEC in Uganda was delivering the right message to its audience and market as well as increase the organization’s visibility and media presence and train and develop our members in this crucial area of virtual systems, and how much opportunities they can offer any organization, After a slow start, we gained presence especially through the innovation and contribution of our members in using and taking advantage of the different platforms, Embracing the different social media avenues, led to the creation of numerous and diverse social networks, to co-ordinate team activities, boost talent morale, ensure member and stakeholder participation in various events as well as ensuring public relations lessons and compete in various areas of communication and information management with the final goal being ensuring the storage of relevant information so future teams and leaders can have a resource place from which to learn from, which was not there before. The relevance of this role was acknowledged greatly, by the impact the processes had on our events, activities, project, individual involvement and morale-boosting as well as updating various stakeholders. Therefore this role has been modified so that it can formally be carried out within each University in which we have a presence for a more effective presentation of the great opportunities AIESEC in Uganda is for University students, recent graduates and other stakeholders, within and without the University campus.
I am an AIESECer
Major achievements; • Each University had at least two leaders, developed in online Public Relations practices, the relevance of media to the success of any organization, developing a smart communication strategy, which leaders could then easily transfer this knowledge to the members and ensure new ideas as well as foster creativity, and talent development within each University's unique environment. • Growth in Media positioning especially the digital type, from using the myaiesec.net systems in research on various subjects and given roles, to assisting in correlating member activities, recruiting members, and Global work experience participants, communicating our events to various stakeholders, as well as giving our members the opportunity to innovate and produce promotional materials like poster, logos, brand aligned t-shirts, videos as well as gaining other skills out of their classrooms for example creating PowerPoint slides, photo editing and mastering several graphic software to create professional works ensuring the addition of several skills to do with public relations, graphic artistry, and advertising to add onto their given courses within the University, thus producing a multitalented individual. We look forward to communication and Information Management partnerships, both for media in terms of communication within and without the organization and Infrastructure like internet enabled computers to encourage the growth of talent and innovation around this particular area of our organization as it is a core part of any successful organization, as well as to aid in knowledge sharing and management processes within our very innovative and diverse membership and stakeholders.

FINANCIAL REPORT FOR AIESEC IN UGANDA 2009/10
Report by: Victoria Nyakundi, Member Committee Vice President Finance and Administration, AmpliFIRE 09/10, AIESEC in Uganda.
Financial sustainability has for the past couple of years been a major focus area of AIESEC in Uganda and the year 09/10 is no exception. This had in the past proved to be a great challenge and this year marked the beginning of a significant turn towards achieving this goal. This was mainly done by the introduction of a financial interim structure that has guided the local chapters on how to gain from the activities that they run. As a result we have seen local chapters improve on their incomes and have at least been able to secure funds to run their various
AIESEC activities smoothly. The financial interim structure was implemented on a trial basis and will be officially passed into the organization’s national compendium in June. AIESEC in Uganda has this year experienced growth in terms of its incomes and expenditures as compared to the last year. Incomes have been earned from project grants, company sponsorship, goodwill support as well as our exchange activities. The percentage contribution is as follows as of May 2010: INCOME Company sponsorships (events or otherwise) Grants for various projects Goodwill support Exchange TOTAL
Conferences and projects have taken up a considerable amount of the expenditures because these activities greatly impact upon our members and improve on their learning such that they are gaining from their participation in AIESEC activities. We mainly carry out our financial transactions via cheques and only in exceptional cases do we do transactions by use of cash. Our expenditure is checked by the signatories to the cheque who ensure that we are spending wisely and in line to the budget presented that year. The following is a breakdown of the yearly incomes and expenditures in monetary terms to give a general overview of the financial status of AIESEC in Uganda. Amounts are presented in the local currency, Ugandan shillings unless otherwise stated. INCOMES
