FOCUS has its genesis from the Christian Union at Makerere University formed in 1962 and the Christian Union at National Teachers’ College Kyambogo formed in 1972. FOCUS was affiliated to the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) in 1979 and was part of the Pan African Fellowship of Evangelical Students prior to that. The Christian Union is our point of contact in any college or university. It is a student-led group of Christian students from different denominations united around the gospel in the work of evangelism and discipleship.

The Fellowship of Christian Unions (FOCUS) is an Evangelical Interdenominational Christian organization committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ on University and college campuses in Uganda. FOCUS is also committed to nurturing these students to grow and become effective witnesses of Christ in institutions of higher learning, and leaders in church and society.
