Welcome to the City of Dallas, Texas for the 12th Annual International Community of Banyakigezi (ICOB) Convention
July 31 – August 03, 2015
In keeping with ICOB’s aspirations to advance the cultural, social and economic development of the Banyakigezi, we have chosen this year’s theme to be: Towards a Better Tomorrow; Unlocking Kigezi’s Human and Economic Potential.
The main purpose of our annual conventions is to mobilize members and friends towards the socio-economic development of Kigezi, through ICOB’s flagship, the Kigezi Education Fund (KEF). KEF supports vocational, business and technical training of young Banyakigezi. The Convention also provides a forum to promote our culture, network, meet old and new friends, and to celebrate our heritage.
