Stories of Celebrations

From the chanting of the choir at the Mother Temple of Africa to family celebrations in rural villages, the Ugandan Bahá’í community celebrated the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh throughout this equatorial African country. A special program at the Bahá’í House of Worship in Kampala was broadcast worldwide. Since the early days of the Bahá’í community in Uganda, Bahá’u’lláh's teachings have inspired people and communities to be of service to humanity and express their love of Bahá’u’lláh.

Celebrations and preparations at the Kampala Temple

While hundreds gathered at the Kampala Temple grounds to view the film, "Light to the World," and participate in other aspects of the celebration, many also helped prepare the grounds and the Temple in the months before the bicentenary.
