The Bahá’í Faith was introduced to Uganda in 1951, making it one of the earliest Bahá’í communities in Eastern Africa. Since then, the Ugandan Bahá’ís have firmly established the Faith in their country, with members representing nearly every tribal and religious background and being located in over 2,800 localities throughout the country.

The first Bahá’í House of Worship on the African continent, completed in 1961, is situated in Kampala and has become a well-known landmark of the capital. Bahá’í Houses of Worship are spiritual gathering places open to all peoples.
