Speke Resort in Munyonyo will yet again host the British royal family in 2020 when the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Uganda hosts the International Gold Event 2020, a global forum.

"On behalf of the Award in Uganda, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the International Award for awarding the International Gold Event 2020 to Kampala, Uganda,"
"Uganda, once described as the pearl of Africa by Sir Winston Churchill, prepares to host the international community at Speke Resot Munyonyo, a modern and luxurious facility, host of the Commonwealth heads of state meeting in 2007 and Commonwealth games federation general assembly.
"We look forward to hosting the international council meeting and IGE in Kampala, Uganda.” Blick stated in a recorded video message.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation was started in the United Kingdom in 1956 and is spread around 140 countries.
It globally creates opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure. In Uganda it was established in Uganda in 1986.
The Award plays a critical role in youth development outside the classroom. It also allows their achievement to be consistently recognised worldwide, giving young people unique international accreditation of their experiences.
The youth awards are called to recognise participants who volunteer in their communities and make a positive contribution to society.
