No mention of a Teso Development Network could be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

There is, however, one mention of an Iteso Development Network. A 15 July 2001 New Vision article describes the Iteso Development Network as "an association of Iteso living abroad" and reported that the organization would hold its annual conference between 17-19 August 2001 in Kennington, South London. The article refers to Ogogol Eudu as the association's secretary (ibid.). Eudu is reported to have stated that the conference would focus on "poverty alleviation and rural development in Teso" as well as health, education, income generation, and the empowerment of women and youth (ibid.). Further reports of the outcomes of the conference could not be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum. Please find below the list of additional sources consulted in researching this Information Request.
