The theme of the conference is: Teso: Past, Present and Future. The aim of the conference is to foster a united approach to recognising the problems affecting Teso, identifying and prioritising strategies, opportunities and resources to tackle them.

The six-day’s conference will bring together the Iteso, friends of Teso, and key development stakeholders including the political, economic, social, cultural and religious leaders from Teso.

In addition, distinguished local, international, and Diaspora based strategic development organisations that work in Teso region and Uganda as a whole will take part.
