Speaking to guests to mark the company’s 16th anniversary, Patrick Kagenda, the Managing Director said, “It has been a worthwhile journey. We are happy to launch ProMISE3.0, one of our key milestones, but without our partners, mentors and dedicated staff members, we would not have hit this milestone. We are extremely grateful for your continued support. We remain committed to serving Ugandans and the region with world class solutions.”
Data Care has become a leading ICT consulting company that has been at the forefront of providing services for many government and Non-Government projects in Uganda and the East African region at large.
