Uganda Professional Drivers' Network

Uganda Professional Drivers' Network (UPDN) is a Network NGO for drivers’ associations/organizations and related industry stakeholders. UPDN was established in 2015 and registered as a legal entity with the National NGO Board under the Ministry of Internal Affairs in 2016. This was at a time when many drivers’ associations were characterized by limited organization which adversely affected coordination efforts in pursuit of common objectives of better health (welfare), common voice and professionalism. UPDN was hence established to coordinate efforts towards healthier drivers who are empowered and are road safety conscious.
