Changsha and Entebbe became sister cities in 2003. They were the first pair of sister cities since the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Uganda. Over the years, bilateral exchanges and cooperation between both sides have become increasingly frequent. 

Changsha donated money to build the Entebbe-Changsha Model Primary School in 2004. The school was unveiled by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni after its completion. As requested by Entebbe, Changsha started to fund the renovation project of the school in 2019. The project was undertaken by the international branch of Sinohydro Engineering 8th Bureau Co., Ltd. Having overcome the impact of the epidemic and carefully organized the construction, the constructor completed the project on September 15, 2020, with school buildings renovated and staff dormitories, basketball courts and walls newly built. The school’s overall environment has been improved.
