"Wealth rooted in culture and tradition is 'the best form of wealth"
A Luo Saying
Through our #ExploreOkere initiative, we hope to build Okere City as a top community tourism destination in Uganda. In collaboration with tour operators in Uganda, we organize group visits to Okere on a periodic basis. We are excited to welcome you to Okere to experience the wealth of Lango culture and the impact of our radical community work and rural futuristic imagination.
Okere village prides on over 50 traditional music groups that specialize in the local Okeme world music genre. We are on an ambitious journey of professionally recording all their tunes
