Ugandan Bahais

The Baha'i Faith

The Baha'i Faith is a world religion whose purpose is to unite all the races and peoples in one universal Cause and one common Faith. Baha'is are the followers of Baha'u'llah, Who they believe is the Promised One of all Ages. The traditions of almost every people include the promise of a future when peace and harmony will be established on earth and humankind will live in prosperity. We believe that the promised hour has come and that Baha'u'llah is the great Personage Whose Teachings will enable humanity to build a new world.

Who we are

The Baha'is in Uganda just like their brothers and sisters in other parts of the world are involved in a number of activities aimed at promoting the wellbeing and betterment of our communities. These include providing children with moral and spiritual education, and helping young teenagers to develop their spiritual and intellectual qualities. Study circles provide participants with knowledge and skills that enable them to walk a path of service to humanity. We also have regular devotional meetings in private homes and public places in which Baha'is and their friends commune with God.

Baha'i inspired organisations operate in some communities in the country helping all people to promote the wellbeing of their own communities.

We also participate in many discourses that are taking place around the country such as the discourse on Science, Religion and Development.
