Uganda Development Trust (UDET) was founded and incorporated in Uganda in 2001 with the aim of responding to the need for competent and effective managers in various sectors of the economy in Uganda as a developing nation.
During its formative years, the founders of UDET and their associates mainly undertook consultancy assignments as individuals and as staff, executing projects funded by both local and international agencies. These individuals have built a strong team of Ugandan nationals with wide experience in business and NGO management in Uganda, across Africa, the USA and Europe.
